Technical Abstract: Whitefly-transmitted virus diseases of cucurbit crops are increasing throughout the southern United States. This photo guide presents photographs and discusses similarities and differences in symptoms caused by insect-transmitted viruses on watermelon and other cucurbit crops. Emphasis is on viruses transmitted by whiteflies, and diseases with similar symptoms, but also provides information to identify insect vectors of virus diseases affecting cucurbit crops. This photo guide will be used by growers for identification of virus symptoms in the field.
