Evaluation of Chemical Management, Inoculum Sources and Aphid Vectors for Potato Virus Y Grant uri icon



  • Objectives of this research are to evaluate insecticides registered for aphid control for the reduction of PVY transmission under field conditions, investigate the vector potential of the bird cherry-oat aphid and compare it with the vector potential of the green peach aphid, and determine whether hairy nightshade plants might play an important role as potential inoculum source for the virus in the field.
