Research Project: Identify Species of Aphids from Traps to Assist in Modeling Aphid Movement

Location: Soybean/maize Germplasm, Pathology, and Genetics Research

Project Number: 5012-22000-022-11-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2016
End Date: Aug 31, 2019

Objective:
The objective of this research will be to process, identify, and curate aphid specimens.

Approach:
The work will include processing samples from five locations per state consisting of four traps (two each of two trap types). Data on species identification will be shared with cooperators for analysis and used in modeling the annual abundance and timing of aphid movements and correlation with virus incidence.
