Crop losses caused by viruses are common to cucurbits (rockmelon, watermelon, cucumber, zucchini, squash and pumpkin) in many countries. In the United States for example, squash and watermelon losses may be as high as 50 to 70 per cent.
In Carnarvon, in 1974, all rockmelon plants in a trial at Gascoyne Research Station were infected, but it was severe losses in 1973, which prompted the investigation reported here.
