Distribution of Necrotic Strains of PVY in Potato Tubers and Sprouts Grant uri icon



  • Objectives of this research are to determine if differences exist in the distribution and virus titre in tubers during various periods of storage. Potato virus Y (PVY) necrotic strains and a common strain's distribution in tubers of six different cultivars will be investigated. Results may provide information on better tuber testing protocols to detect these strains and also provide information on any strain distribution differences that could affect virus transmission.
