A recent international workshop on sweetpotato cultivar decline identified three groups of viruses as high priorities for research: potyviruses, criniviruses, and Sweetpotato culture and diseases book.

The state of knowledge and needed research on identification, detection, geographic distribution, and economic importance of these groups of viruses in relation to sweetpotato is discussed.

USA United States of America. sweetpotato is able to produce a comparatively high yield under relatively adverse conditions; however, a number of pests, diseases, and nutritional disorders affect the crop. Among the pest and disease constraints, sweetpotato weevils (Cylas spp.) and virus diseases probably contribute the most to yield losses, although leaf-feeding insects.

Sweet potatoes are propagated by suspending a tuber in a glass of water or burying one part-way in sand or other porous media; letting shoots grow from the tuber; then rooting the shoots. Illustration from Sweetpotato Culture and Diseases, Agriculture Handbook. Abstract. The sweet potato, Ipomoea batatas (L.) LAM., is a member of the morning glory or beniveed family (Convolvulaceae), which contains about 50 genera and over species.

The sweet potato is the only member of the genus Ipomoea whose root is edible. Sweet potato virus disease is a disease complex caused by two viruses; sweet potato chlorotic stunt virus (SPCSV) and sweet potato feathery mottle virus (SPFMV).

The symptoms are sever stunting of infected plants, stunting, distorted and chlorotic mottle or vein clearing of the leaves. It is confirmed that SPCSV enhances the accumulation of SPFMV.
