Citrus Yellow Mosaic Virus (CYMV) disease and citrus greening bacterium are two important diseases in citrus. Citrus yellow mosaic virus (CYMV) disease is caused by bacilliform DNA virus while citrus greening disease caused by a fastidious bacterium (Candidatus liberibacter asiaticus) (Cla). Both the pathogens are infected citrus plants may detected by PCR using leaf tissues midrib tissue incase of greening. Both the disease are graft transmissible, and their relative distribution in tissues other than leaves are not known, we have demonstrated that CYMV and Cla can be detected by PCR in bark, and bud in addition to leaf tissue of infected citrus plants. These pathogens were absent in root tissue. It barks tissue can be a better tissue for DNA template preparation for PCR detection of CYMV. However, greening was amplified better in from leaf mid rib in comparison to bark tissue.
