Research Project: Biological Differences Among Haplotypes of Potato Psyllid: Implications for Northwest Potato Growers

Location: Temperate Tree Fruit and Vegetable Research

Project Number: 2092-22000-020-16-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2013
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Compare biology and vector efficiencies of three genetic types of potato psyllid.

• Lab rearing trials to compare development times and survival. • Transmission and acquisition trials using known infected potato, with PCR to determine acquisition of the pathogen. • Laboratory examination of whether infected female psyllids produce infective offspring. • Manipulation of photoperiod to determine effects on diapause response and coldhardiness of genetic types.
