Jatropha species have many excellent characteristics like bio-fuel, high oil content, resistance to drought and other commercial importance values. The several reports have been indicated that Jatropha mosaic disease has been drastically affected the Jatropha cultivation in India. The association of begomovirus diseases consists of symptoms like mosaic on Jatropha species has been reported worldwide including in India. The status of the work used and the results obtained in methodology for identification and characterization of begomovirus isolates associated with symptomatology like mosaic disease of Jatropha species grown in India, are presented in this review article. Because mostly Jatropha species are being propagated by cuttings, and new species of Begomoviruses are emerging in newly introduced locations for Jatropha cultivation in India. The review articles is highlighted the new emerging begomovirus diseases on Jatropha species and will be incited to researchers for better improvements of Jatropha cultivations for oil productivity in worldwide.
