A survey of potential vectors of apricot chlorotic leaf roll
MetadataShow full item record
A comparative survey was done in leafhopper populations captured in apricot orchards in two areas of Valencia, one with considerable natural spread of apricot chlorotic leaf roll (ACLR), and the other where such natural spread is virtually nonexistent. An identification of the leafhopper species found in the first and in the second area suggest that Neoaliturus haematoceps and/or Neoaliturus fertestratus are the potential vectors of ACLR, at least under the conditions of Valencia province. Psammotettix striatus and Austroagallia sinuata are potential secondary vextors of ACLR.
