Sites varied considerably in BYDV incidence as well as in rate of disease progress. There was evidence of recovery in some plants, and at Narrogin most infected plants recovered. Taking the mean disease score in the last recording; Manjimup, Albany, Bridgetown, Katanning and Narrogin showed decreasing amounts of incidence in that order. The lower rainfall sites (Katanning and Narrogin) had a much lower incidence of BYDV than the higher rainfall sites. Clover Viruses - 80AL29, 80BR15, 80BU2, 80BY6, 80ES52, 80MA10.
