TSV hits Sudanese faba beans

Tobacco streak virus (TSV) has hit Sudanese faba beans for the first time, the British Society for Plant Pathology says. The disease, which also infects other crops such as peanuts, sunflowers and okra, was initially observed in northern Sudan and the country’s eastern region of Gezira. "Symptoms in beans were coincident with a high level of crop infestation by cowpea aphids ( Aphis craccivora) that might play a role in the transmission of the virus," the Society says.
