Seeds: Infected by Viruses or Bacteria
« on: August 13, 2016, 02:02:17 PM »
The question was asked in the General area if seeds could be infected and then pass this on to plants grown from this seed.  The answer is yes and this article from Cornell University Ag dept. is a good one dealing with that possibility.

And since most seed bought from seed companies comes from over seas 3rd world countries this is probably where lots of problems come from..
