The role and importance of different insect species in the ecology of CSSV (cacao swollen shoot virus) in Togo



The role and importance of different insect species in the ecology of CSSV (cacao swollen shoot virus) in Togo



Cafe, Cacao, The 35(3): 197-204



Eight Pseudococcidae spp. have been reported to transmit "Agou 1" disease, a dominant form of the disease caused by cacao swollen shoot badnavirus in cocoa plantations in Togo. Present studies revealed that the main mealybug vector populations comprise Planococcoides njalensis and Planococcus citri/kenyae group.
