Abstract:
Phytoplasmas are phloem-limited, insect-transmitted, plant pathogenic bacteria that are responsible for hundreds of diseases world-wide. Because transmission occurs quickly, plants become infected before insecticides can act on the vector. The single most effective means of controlling the vector is to cover plants with insect exclusion netting; however, this is not practical for most commercial crops. Because of these limitations, researchers are turning to genetic manipulation of plants to affect vector populations and pathogen transmission. These novel control schemes include symbiont control (SyBaP), plant lectins, and systemic acquired resistance (SAR).
