Citrus fruits belonging to the family Rutaceae, occupies a place of considerable importance in the fruit crop due to high economic returns. Citrus greening is one of the most severe disease of citrus. Citrus greening disease was presumed to originate in china during the 1890 (Graca 1991). It is evident that the citrus disease has emerged as a potential series threat to citrus production in all the citrus growing districts of Maharashtra. It has been proved that in Maharashtra the greening disease is the major causes a decline in citrus production. Therefore attempts were made to study the detection by transmission studies the greening pathogen. In transmission studies, sweet orange indicator plant exhibited leaf mottling and interveinal yellowing symptoms from Mosambi bud source plant and leaf mottling symptoms from Kamla bud source plant. The acid lime exhibited interveinal yellowing and vein yellowing from Mosambi bud source plant, while leaf chlorosis from kamla bud source plant. Tangelo indicator plants exhibited leaf mottling and vein yellowing symptoms from bud source of Mosambi and leaf chlorosis and leaf mottling symptoms from bud source Kamla.

Keywords: Citrus greening, Indicator plant and interveinal yellowing.
