Plants infected with Hosta Virus X don’t always exhibit symptoms, but a test strip that Agdia recently developed can detect HVX even when infection isn’t exactly recognizable.
The Agdia HVX ImmunoStrip is designed to deliver on-the-spot results and takes just minutes to work. The ImmunoStrip has a guaranteed shelf life of one year and is portable, which means tests can be administered before purchasing plants or accepting shipments. Tests can help monitor plants throughout the season, as well, and they work with leaf or root material.
