A literature review of novel strategies to manage viruses in UK crops
The review provides an overview of virus management options, on a national and international level, that could benefit UK crop production in cereals and oilseeds, sugar beet, potato, field vegetables and protected tomato. It includes a summary of the major virus diseases affecting these crops in the UK, their vectors and alternate hosts and their primary methods of detection. Based on the knowledge (in 2019), the authors have provided a prioritised list of control options, both applied and fundamental, which should be investigated and/or applied to UK production systems.
About this project
To summarise the current knowledge (in 2019) of the biology and management of key viruses in UK crops and the approaches to their management that are being adopted elsewhere. The aim was to produce a prioritized list of control options that should be evaluated/validated under UK conditions.
