A screen to test for resistance to blueberry shoestring virus (BBSSV) was developed using rub inoculation and the ELISA technique. A high rate of infection can be obtained with a virus concentration of 0.25 mg/ml when it is applied to randomly selected leaves of container grown blueberries during any portion of the growing season. However, plants must be ELISA tested in the early spring or 5 times during the rest of the growing season to achieve >50% accuracy.
