    A small-scale survey for blueberry viruses in Bosnia and Herzegovina was performed in 2018. A total of 20 samples from three locations were collected and analyzed for the presence of 11 viruses. ELISA assays were performed for blueberry scorch virus, blueberry shock virus, blueberry shoestring virus, blueberry leaf mottle virus, tobacco ringspot virus, and tomato ring spot virus. The samples were tested for blueberry red ringspot virus by PCR, and blueberry fruit drop associated virus, blueberry latent virus, blueberry mosaic associated virus, blueberry necrotic ring blotch virus, blueberry virus A, and blueberry leaf mottle virus by RT-PCR. The analyses confirmed the presence of BlLV in eight samples with no other virus detected in any of the samples.
