St. Augustine decline satellite virus

Panicum mosaic satellite virus (SPMV) is a plant satellite virus. It only infects grasses which are infected by Panicum mosaic virus. One study found that 72% of Stenotaphrum secundatum (St Augustine grass) infected with panicum mosaic virus was also infected with SPMV.[1] In addition to SPMV, many plants infected with panicum mosaic virus are also infected with satellite RNAs.[1]
