Sunflower necrosis virus (SFNV) has a wide host range, which includes many cultivated crops and weed hosts. Fifteen plant species belonging to Fabaceae, 3 plant species belonging to Malvaceae, 6 plant species belonging to Cucurbitaceae, 3 plant species belonging to Solanaceae and one plant species each belonging to Caricaceae and Moringaceae were found to be additional hosts for SFNV. Besides, weeds such as Trianthema portulacastrum, Priva leptostachya, Digeria arvensis, Clitoria ternatea, Solanum nigrum, Vernonia cineraria, Trichodesma indicum and many other species were found to act as hosts for SFNV.
