Investigating the timing of transmission of carrot viruses to improve management strategies


1) Vector management – assessing the relative importance of different vector species and the timing of transmission of the key viruses, Carrot red leaf virus (CtRLV) and Carrot yellow leaf virus (CYLV), into carrot crops. 2) Sources of virus – with a focus on CYLV carry out a limited population study on isolates of the virus to see if population phylogenetics can identify the source of infections in carrot crops. 3) Further development/refinement of aphid forecasting systems and improved interpretation of monitoring data. 4) Initial trialling of improved management strategies.
