Re: C I C L Y (unknown)

Since electron microscopy is expensive and tedious, preliminary screening of plant samples using phytoplasma specific stains like Diens stain and DAPI stain is advisable and more pratical. Then the samples which tested positive after screening can be sujected to electron microscopy or ELISA Test. Facily for electon microscopy is avaialbe at Veterrinary college KAU, Mannuthy and CPCRI Kayamkulam. Facily for Elisa is avaialble at Dept of pl.pathology College of Agriculture Vellayani and in Biotech Dept of KAU. Electon microscopy and ElISA tests can complement each other in detection of phytoplasma

Sir,
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.
Thanking you
Govindan
