    Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV), the type member of the Benyvirus genus, has a multipartite, positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome, which consists generally of four, or in some isolates five, distinct RNA species. In this study, 108 BNYVV infected soil samples were collected from...

    In this experiment we (i) tested the hypothesis that, besides decreasing leaf C fixation, lime induced iron (Fe) deficiency increases root C fixation via PEP carboxylase and (ii) assessed the Fe-induced modifications in the elemental composition of plant tissues. Sugar beet plants were grown in...
