To clarify the disease situation, symptom types and pathogens of cassava mosaic virus disease in China, 19 locations in 8 provinces were investigated in 2018-2019, and 384 narcissus samples were collected. Data analysis results showed that cassava mosaic virus disease had already occurred in China Stem transportation was the main reason for the long-distance transmission of the disease. Specific primers of Sri Lankan cassava mosaic virus (SLCMV) and Cassava common mosaic virus (CsCMV) were used to detect the 384 samples. The results showed that SLCMV and CsCMV were detected in 21.1% and 36.5% samples, respectively. 15.1% samples were mix-infected by the two viruses. The sequence similarity between the detected SLVMV and Southeast Asian SLCMV was 99.4%-99.7%, and the sequence similarity between CsCMV and Latin America was 91%-96%. It indicates that domestic cassava mosaic disease is mainly caused by these two viruses, and theCommon mosaic virus may have some sequence mutation.

Key words: Manihot esculenta, Sri Lankan cassava mosaic virus (SLCMV), Cassava common mosaic virus (CsCMV), detection, mixed infection
