Abstract

Serological tests were made using a simple kit consisting of dropper bottles filled with latex sera or buffer, a plastic mixing plate, plastic pipettes, wooden cocktail sticks, a black glass reaction plate and polythene bags, packed in a plastic sandwich box. Potato viruses X, S and Y were readily detected in infected potato leaves in tests done both in the laboratory and in the field. Results were obtained in 4–10 min.
