Blue and white lupin (Lupinus angustifolia and L. albus respectively) became infected with groundnut mottle virus when planted next to groundnuts. In each of 2 yr >80% of lupins were infected. Incidence was very low in lupins planted >100 m from a virus source. Height reduction and yield losses were greater in lupins than in infected groundnuts and soyabeans. The rate of seed transmission in white lupin was <1%. Infected lupins can provide an overwintering source of GMV for the next groundnut crop. Destroying groundnuts before lupins are planted, or planting lupins >100 m from groundnuts may prevent GMV epidemics in lupin.
