A mechanically transmissible soil-borne virus was isolated from groundnut plants showing symptoms of clump disease [RAM 47, 83] in Upper Volta. The virus infected mainly spp. of Chenopodiaceae and was propagated in Chenopodium amaranticolor. Infectivity was lost from sap of C. amaranticolor after 10 min at 64 deg C and after dilution of 10-5 but not 10-4. A purification procedure is described. The particles are rod shaped and of 2 predominant lengths, 190 and 245 nm. The virus is not serologically related to tobacco rattle, pea early browning or soil-borne wheat mosaic viruses, or to a virus associated with a rhizomania like disease of beet.
