Aphid Transmission of Plant Viruses: Vector Competence and Transmission Efficiency Grant uri icon



  • PLRV and PEMV are serious limiting factors in Idaho potato and pea production systems, respectively. This project is designed to produce information about vector-virus-plant interactions that impact viral epidemiology. Reduce and/or eliminate reliance upon insecticides as the only means of controlling the spread of aphid-borne viruses.
