Cucumber mosaic virus(CMV), papaya ringspot virus and zucchini yellow mosaic virus from cucurbit crops and chilli veinal mottle virus and CMV from pepper were isolated and tested in Thailand. In the field tests with natural infection, some cultivars and lines were found to be resistant to those viruses.
