Control of virus infection in crop plants through vector resistance: a review of achievements, prospects and problems

Control of virus infection in crop plants through vector resistance: a review of achievements, prospects and problems

Annals of Applied Biology 111(3): 745-772

The subject is reviewed under the following headings: (1) association of vector resistance with a decrease in virus incidence or virus infection, dealing with resistance to fungi, nematodes, thrips, eriophyid mites, whiteflies, beetles, aphids, planthoppers and leafhoppers; (2) some mechanisms involved in virus vector resistance, dealing with interference with (a) location of host plants, (b) initial settling and feeding behaviour, (c) sustained feeding behaviour and (d) vector transmission; (3) other possible benefits of using vector resistant material; and (4) possible problems in the production and use of vector-resistant cultivars.
