The occurrence of Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and the related disease symptoms on aromatic and medicinal plants of Lamiaceae and Asteraceae families were studied in 2004-2015. The best essential oil plant species belong to these families. Virus identification was done by the serological method DAS ELISA and indicator method of test plants for CMV. The results for CMV detection on fifteen most popular species of the Lamiaceae and eight of the Asteraceae families were presented. CMV was found on ten of all aromatic and medicinal plant species in over fifty percent of the analyzed plants of each of them. These species were: Agastache foeniculum, Melissa officinalis, Ocimum basilicum, Origanum heracleoticum, Salvia officinalis, Salvia sclarea, Satureja hortensis, Thymus officinalis (Lamiaceae), Inula helenium, Serratula coronata (Asteraceae). The control of CMV caused viroses during the cultivation process is crucial for obtaining high yield of prime quality.
