Abstract

POTATO paracrinkle virus, discovered by Salaman and Le Pelley1, has been found in every plant of the variety King Edward that has been examined, but never in other varieties in the field, although it can be transmitted to them by grafting. The inference is that it has no natural means of spreading, and must have been present in the original seedling from which the variety King Edward came.
