MetadataShow full item record
A method for conferring plant tolerance to severe diseases, specifically caused by a viruses vectored by soilborne fungi, wherein a non-virulent or mildly virulent virus is transmitted to the plant and renders the plant tolerant to disease caused by a more virulent virus.
