Area wide management of vegetable diseases resources
A series of resources are now available on area wide management (AWM) of vegetable diseases from Project VG16086 Area wide management of vegetable diseases: viruses and bacteria, delivered by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (QDAF).
AWM strategies for vector-borne diseases will help to prevent or minimise the development of insecticide resistance in vector populations, improve the efficiency of biological agents released for control of vectors, and better protect host resistance genes against the emergence of resistance-breaking strains of the viruses. It also provides management options when host resistance genes are not available.
See the list of new resources below:
- Area wide management of insect-vectored viral and bacterial diseases
- Managing potyvirus disease on zucchini in Australia
- Lettuce necrotic yellows virus in the Lockyer Valley
- Managing virus disease on zucchini in Australia
- Viruses infecting brassicas
- Aphids spreading virus in brassicas and lettuce in the Lockyer Valley
- Efficacy of insecticides for control of non-persistently transmitted viruses
- Is copper copper? Limitations in the control of foliar bacterial diseases in capsicum, chilli and tomato.
VG16086 has been funded by Hort Innovation, using the vegetable research and development levy and contributions from the Australian Government. Hort Innovation is the grower-owned, not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
