Abstract
Abstract In two of Iran's central provinces, several herbaceous plants showing phytoplasma disease symptoms were collected to detect 'Canididatus Phytoplasma asteris'-related phytoplasmas. Confirmation of an association of phytoplasmas with diseased plants was done using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays having the phytoplasma universal primer pairs P1/P7 followed by R16F2n/ R16R2 in nested PCR. Then, for detection of 'Ca. P. asteris', DNA samples were subjected to amplification of rp and t

Abstract
Wild indigo (Tephrosia purpurea (L.) Pers.) grows as a common weed throughout the Indian subcontinent. The plant has pinnate leaves, white or purplish flowers, and flat hairy pods, and is cultivated as a green manure crop. The plant extracts contain compounds such as tephrosin, an aromatic ester, prenylated flavonoid, and sesquiterpene (2) that have medicinal properties. The newly recognized disease, Tephrosia purpurea witches' broom (TPWB), was characterized by chlorosis, stunting, and prolife
