Rosette Disease: Rosette disease primarily affects groundnuts (peanuts). It is caused by a virus transmitted by aphids. Symptoms include yellowing, curling, and rosette-like growth of leaves, leading to reduced pod formation. Disease-resistant peanut varieties and controlling aphid vectors are key preventive measures.
