Relationship of Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) Lesion Number and Concentration to the Rate of Lesion Production on Pinto Bean

Abstract

IN experiments which required the daily counting of TMV lesions on pinto bean leaves (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) for the purpose of determining specific rates of lesion-appearance, it was noted that those leaves which had the greatest final number of lesions produced a greater percentage of their lesions earlier. Since comparisons of rates of lesion development could be seriously affected by differences arising from this, an attempt was made to determine its cause and extent.
