Aster yellow disease in spring wheat – a benchmark characterization and cultivar assessment
This project aims to address these gaps, by studying the expression of AY symptom in wheat using bioassays and leafhopper colonies recently developed to study the disease in canola. As well, several rapid molecular techniques were developed and are now routinely used to detect and identify AY strains in plant and insects.
