Abstract:  A recently characterized sugarcane mosaic virus isolate (SCM-UP) from eastern Uttar Pradesh, India was found antigenically similar to sugarcane mosaic virus isolates of West Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. The results were confirmed either by DAC-ELISA, EBIA, DIBA and ISEM together or by any of these serological tests. The SCM-UP isolate reacted with AP isolate of sugarcane streak mosaic virus (SCSMV-AP, antiserum), a member of Tritimovirus and a proposed genus in the family Potyviridae, which is recently reported from South India in ISEM test. Hence, it was concluded that sugarcane mosaic disease in India, observed on many varieties of sugarcane, is caused by pathotype of sugarcane mosaic virus which is antigenically similar to other virus isolates causing sugarcane mosaic disease all over India. These virus isolates showed more or less similar biological reactions on sorghum, sugarcane and Johnsongrass.
