Research Project: Cold-Hardiness of Potato Psyllid under Washington State Conditions: Implications of Host Plant, Psyllid Genetic Type, and Infection Status

Location: Fruit and Vegetable Insect Research

Project Number: 5352-22000-020-18
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: May 15, 2013
End Date: Sep 30, 2017

Objective:
Examine cold-hardiness of potato psyllid under Washington State conditions.

Approach:
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.
