Cucumber Mosaic virus in lupins.
A testing service for lupin growers was provided by the Seed Testing Station. The level of CMV in seed was determined in a 1000 seed sample using the ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) technique developed by Dr. R.C. Jones.To speed up processing of samples levels greater than 1.2% were not determined - to do so would have required repeating the test at a different level of grouping. Growers were charged $114 per sample tested. The service was advertised as being available for samples received up until 28 February.
