Strawberry virus symptoms

The following images are some of the symptoms associated with strawberry viruses. They are easily confused with symptoms caused by herbicide damage or nutrient deficiency. The presence of these symptoms does not always indicate virus in a field, and the symptoms cannot always be associated with a particular virus. The combinations of viruses that occur and the cultivars affected may result in different symptoms.
