|Authors||Plumb, R. T.|
Barley yellow dwarf virus is persistently transmitted by a number of aphid species of which three, Rhopalosiphum padi, Sitobion avenae and Metopolophium dirhodum, are common in most years. Other aphids may be locally important. Isolates of the virus differ in their virulence and geographical distribution and are not transmitted equally well by all aphid vectors. Isolates with similar properties are grouped into strains according to their transmission by vectors and their severity. Changes in strain and aphid occurrence from year to year alter the incidence of virus and its effect on yield. These changes emphasize the need for detailed knowledge of cereal aphid biology and epidemiology of BYDV before effective control can be used.
