Abstract: Ouchterlony agar double diffusion test and ELISA were used to detect viruses infecting potato in Gassim and Riyadh, the two major regions for potato production in central Saudi Arabia . From these two regions, 259 diseased plant samples were collected. The agar double diffusion test was used to detect viruses in the samples collected in the first season ( Autumn, 1989 ) while ELISA was used for samples collected in the last three seasons of survey ( Autumn 1990, Spring 1990 and 1991 ). Twelve viruses were detected in each region. These were afalfa mosaic ( AMV ), cucumber mosaic ( CMV ), potato leafroll ( PLRV ) , the potato viruses A, M, S, X and Y, potato yellow dwarf ( PYDV ), tobacco mosaic ( TMV ), tobacco ring spot ( TRSV ) and tomato spotted wilt ( TSWV ) . AMV, was the most frequently detected virus in each of the two regions but PLRV and TRSV were the least detected in Gassim and Riyadh regions, respectively
