Start Date: May 15, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2017
Examine cold-hardiness of potato psyllid under Washington State conditions.
a. Determine effects of sub-zero temperatures on potato psyllid, and determine if haplotype affects cold-hardiness.
b. Examine survival of infected and uninfected psyllids when exposed to sub-zero temperatures.
