Strawberry crinkle cytorhabdovirus

Strawberry crinkle cytorhabdovirus, commonly called Strawberry crinkle virus (SCV), is a negative sense single stranded RNA virus that threatens strawberry production worldwide.

This virus reduces plant rigidity, runner production, fruit size, and production, while causing distortion and crinkling of the leaves.

This virus was first described in 1932 in Oregon and with commercial strawberry varieties, and later became an issue around the world, including , America, Europe, , New Zealand, , and .

Of the Rhabdoviridae, it is a large of viruses that affects plants, vertebrates, and invertebrates.

Specifically, this virus is transmitted through two aphid vectors that feed on strawberry plants of Fragaria, Chaetosiphon fragaefolii and C. jacobi.

When SCV is combined with other aphid-transmitted strawberry viruses, such as mottle, mild yellow-edge, vein banding, or pallidosis, the damage becomes even more deleterious.

Economically, Fragaria ananassa are those being affected by SCV.
