Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) has become a persistent problem on some cucumber nurseries in the UK. The number of affected nurseries is increasing as the disease can spread rapidly through a crop reducing yields by up to 25%. This factsheet will help growers to identify the virus. It also provides guidance on how to stop the virus entering crops; how to reduce spread once it has occurred and; how to clean-up to prevent recurrence.
