Plumb, R. T. 1976. Barley yellow dwarf virus in aphids caught in suction traps, 1969-73. Annals of Applied Biology - AAB. 83 (1), pp. 53-59.
|Authors||Plumb, R. T.|
Suction traps operating at low level (1 5 m) were used to catch live alate Rhopalosiphum padi, Macrosiphum (Sitobion) avenae and Metopolophium dirhodum which were tested for transmission of barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV). The first species caught and infective was R. padi, followed by M. (S.) avenae infective some 2–3 wk later and M. dirhodum 3–4 wk later still. Never more than 11‐5% of the annual catch of any species transmitted BYDV and the proportion fluctuated from week to week and between seasons in different years.
The relative abundance of infective vectors of ths three species varied; annual numbers of infective M. (S.) avenae and M. dirhodum varied inversely with infective R. padi, the latter also usually transmitted severer virus. The results of the infectivity tests have been compared with the catches of these aphids by the Rothamsted Insect Survey and show that numbers of alate aphids do not necessarily indicate the likely incidence of BYDV.
