Azərbaycan Kənd Təsərrüfatı Nazirliyi Tərəvəzçilik Elmi Tədqiqat İnstitutu və Üzümçülük və Şərabçılıq ETİ. The purpose of the expeditions was to reveal viruses that cause Grapevine Leafroll Disease in grapes, general viruses in tomatoes, and Potyviruses in other vegetables and melon plants. Samples were taken from the shredding of leaf axils in tomato plant, necrosis and yellow spots, as well as leaves covered with white-winged butterflies that play a major role in the transmission of viruses. Yellow mosaic, necrosis spots, leaf rot were observed in melon plants. During viral infections in grapes, colorful mosaics on the leaves, shrinking of the leaf axils, shortening of the trunk were observed. During the expeditions, samples were collected from the leaves of vegetables and melons such as tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, watermelons, as well as the leaves of grapes with symptomatic symptoms during the pathogenesis of the virus.
