Yellow streak mosaic of winter wheat caused heavy losses in yield in 1959. The loss was estimated at well over a million dollars. The damage ranged from a trace in some fields to a complete loss in others. Some fields were plowed down in midseason when it became evident that 100 percent of the plants in the field were severely diseased, yellowed, stunted and no yield would result.
