Greetings. In Kerala I have seen some coconut plants showing symptoms almost similar to Lethal Yellowing.(M.Govindan et al. 1996. Indian coconut journal. 2-4) Now similar reports are appearing from other parts of the country also(Bhaskaran et al. 2007.Indian coconut Journal: 2-4). I would like to have a few samples tested for the presence of phytoplasma. Kindly suggest the persons whom I can contact for help.
