symptoms of maize streak

What are the symptoms of maize streak?


  • Maize streak is a viral disease that affects maize plants. The symptoms of maize streak include the appearance of streaks or stripes on the leaves, yellowing and drying of the leaves, stunted growth, and reduction in yield. The streaks on the leaves may be pale green, yellow or brown, and may run parallel or zigzag along the veins. The symptoms of maize streak may be mistaken for nutrient deficiency or drought stress, but close observation can reveal the presence of the virus in the affected plants.
