Exploratory work on sugarcane streak mosaic virus in Myanmar

In countries other than Australia, mosaic diseases in sugarcane are caused by sorghum mosaic virus and sugarcane streak mosaic virus. These viruses do not occur in Australia and are serious biosecurity threats to the Australian sugarcane industry. This project is assisting the Australian sugarcane industry with crucial information on this exotic biosecurity risk. In addition, the project works with local industry in ensuring they have relevant and up to date information on the disease and its potential impact on the Australian sugarcane industry.
