In the P.R. China, ten graft-transmissible pathogens have been identified towards citrus, including Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus, Citrus tristeza virus (CTV), Citrus tatter-leaf virus (CTLV), Citrus exocortis viroid (CEVd), Citrus yellow vein clearing virus (CYVCV),Satsuma dwarf virus (SDV), Citrus vein enation virus (CVED), Citrus psorosis virus (CPsV), Citrus cachexia viroid (CCaVd) and Citrus chlorotic dwarf virus (CCDV). Of these pathogens, the first five cause damage in field citrus trees, whereas the latter five were occasionally detected from the imported citrus materials or field trees. The research progresses about HLB, CTV, CYVCV etc. within recent three years have briefly been reviewed.
