Wheat mosaic virus (WMoV), or High Plains virus (HPV) or Maize red stripe virus (MRSV/MRStV) is the causative agent of High plains disease of maize and wheat.[1] It is spread by wheat curl mite, Aceria tosichella, which also transmits Wheat streak mosaic virus.[2][3] The mite's ability to transmit a number of different viruses to cereal crops make it an economically important agricultural pest.[4]
