Final Report: UM00029 - Wheat curl mite and its role in the transmission of wheat streak mosaic virus

Plain text source: 
The increasing prevalence and spread of wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV) in Australia has highlighted the necessity to fully understand the biology, ecology and genetics of its primary vector, the wheat curl mite (WCM)... The results generated provide a valuable framework for prioritising future research and devising control strategies for WCM and the associated spread of WSMV in Australia... The results have implications for management and provide a foundation for understanding the colonisation ability of the species, the risk of WSMV spread during growing seasons, and the evolution and spread of insecticide resistance in WCM populations...
