Assunto:  mild leaf
 
Mensagem:  On the Internet I noticed many of the articles about tobacco employed the adj. mild with the name of some plant-striking disease originating from (or negatively associated with) a virus or a fungus attack. Ex.:

- "Infected leaves show mild leaf mottling symptoms..." ("mild" negatively associated with the name of a leaf-striking disease)
- "Squash mild leaf curl virus" (yet another leaf-eating virus)


Mild leaf or not, an unchecked virus stream can get out of hand and wreak havoc on plant life at which point you could kiss your unharvested "roça" good-bye.

Good-bye.
