Abstract

Phyllody is a destructive disease of sesame worldwide. The disease has been causing significant economic losses
by stunting, leaf proliferation and altering floral parts into leafy structures with no capsules. The transmission studies were conducted to transmit the phytoplasma from diseased plants to healthy plants. Using different methods like sap abrasion and sap injection methods to sesame and grafting, leafhopper transmission to periwinkle plants. Among host plants tested, sesame, sunhemp and periwinkle were identified as suitable hosts for the rearing of leafhopper (Orosius albicinctus). Among these methods, phytoplasma was successfully transmitted by grafting and leafhopper from infected sesame to periwinkle.
