Biology and integrated management of leafhoppers and phytoplasma diseases in vineyards of eastern Canada / [by] Julien Saguez ... [et al.].: A59-32/2015E-PDF

Grape growers in eastern Canada are faced with a variety of insect pests and diseases that are still largely unfamiliar and that could have adverse effects on the yield of their vineyards. Leafhoppers, one of the many insect pests of grapevines, not only feed directly on grape foliage but also are vectors of pathogens that cause various diseases, includingphytoplasma diseases. This technical bulletin is designed to aid in the identification of the main species of leafhoppers and reservoir plants associated with eastern Canadian vineyards and in the detection of phytoplasma diseases. It presents methods for managing leafhopper populations and reducing the risk of phytoplasma transmission. It also briefly outlines rearing and analysis techniques to help the reader understand how the grapevine–leafhopper phytoplasma system is being studied.
