The cooperator will provide seeds for two sugar beet populations segregating for beet curly top. The ARS will grow the two populations in the greenhouse and individually inoculate the plants with viruliferous hoppers. The cooperator and ARS will collect leaf samples for DNA analysis and ELISA. The ARS and the cooperator’s scientist will collect phenotypic data. Data analysis will be conducted by both parties.
