We have identified the phytoplasma as an Aster Yellows strain most closely related to the Onion Yellows phytoplasma in Asia, but it is also closely related to the phytoplasma that causes Severe Aster Yellows in western North America. Sustainability in Plant and Crop Protection We have also initiated the rearing of the leafhopper that is most closely associated with the transmission of this pathogen within the watercress farms. We now have established colonies of this vector on plant hosts other than watercress on which they are able to complete their lifecycle, and have begun using these colonies to conduct controlled transmission tests of the pathogen to causes Onion Yellows in Japan, and is less closely related to the phytoplasma that causes Severe Aster Yellows in western North America. Sequence analysis of both the Rp and Tuf genes has been used to further classify phytoplasmas of the Aster Yellows group throughout the world. We are still conducting experiments using laboratory-reared Macrosteles sp. The recommendations that we have provided watercress farmers have allowed them to begin to reclaim the production levels that they were achieving before the introduction of this pathogen and its insect vector into the state. Phytoplasma diseases are associated by bacteria-like pathogens living in plant sap and spread by sap-feeding insects. Phytoplasma diseases in crop plants are usually controlled by rouging of diseased plants, by insect vector control, and by the use of phytoplasma-free planting material for vegetatively propagated crops. With 160+ countries and islands, the tropical belt is the geographical region centered on the equator and limited by the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Thus, accurate identification of phytoplasma and insect vectors, coupled with a better understanding of disease epidemiology and vector population dynamics, is essential to effective management of phytoplasma diseases in potatoes (Munyaneza 2010a). Further characterization of the phytoplasma infecting watercress in Hawaii has included the cloning and sequencing of the Rp and Tuf genes in addition to the cloning and sequencing of the 16S/SR/23S ribosomal DNA genes previously characterized. We will work with the growers and other researchers to examine and implement these control strategies based on an integrated pest management approach. Managing Phytoplasma Disease in Plants. This book will focus on detection and prevention of phytoplasma diseases in field and horticultural crops grown in the tropical belt. Our analyses of these genes has revealed that the watercress phytoplasma is probably most closely related to the Aster Yellows-type phytoplasma that Management of phytoplasmas in potatoes is primarily accomplished by controlling the vectors. The use of phytoplasma-resistant host plants and of phytoplasma-free material for new plantings could represent a starting point for phytoplasma disease management. All of the watercress farmers on Oahu are now aware of the problem this disease presents and of the most efficient ways to protect their farms from this threat. Bacteria in one plant can also spread to other plants, so often removal of an infected plant is necessary to contain the contagion. The observation of the disease progress on these farms has provided us with the ability to formulate options for controlling the spread of this disease in watercress. to achieve an effective disease control, with the lowest environmental impact, it is necessary to elucidate the FD strain once the phytoplasma is detected in a new or in infected areas after some years from an epidemic areas outbreak.

This information is helpful to reduce and localize the pesticide application against the insect vector This book will focus on detection and prevention of phytoplasma diseases in field and horticultural crops grown in the tropical belt. Tropical agriculture is characterized by a significant lack of capital in research and agricultural systems and by a high prevalence of insect pests and diseases. The incidence of yellows disease caused by this phytoplasma on watercress farms on Oahu has decreased markedly over the last year, due to continued efforts by farmers to rogue out infected, symptomatic plants, and to control the population of the insect vector, Macrosteles sp., in their fields. (ISBN: 9781402085703) from Amazon's Book Store. The insect colonies that we have established will enable us to address specific questions regarding the details of pathogen transmission to various crops by this insect.Publications, 212 - Pathogens and Nematodes Affecting Plants. Sequence analysis of the Rp and Tuf genes has been used by many workers to further classify phytoplasmas of the Aster Yellows group. to transmit the phytoplasma to various hosts under controlled conditions in the laboratory, and to examine the effects of the phytoplasma on this insect vector.ImpactsOur work has enabled the watercress farmers of Oahu to successfully manage the yellows disease of watercress caused by a phytoplasma newly introduced into the state. Not logged in most of the production that was lost in the early stages of the watercress yellows epidemic on Oahu, and has prevented the spread of this pathogen to other islands in Hawaii.Publications, Progress 10/01/03 to 09/30/04OutputsThe incidence of yellows disease caused by phytoplasma on watercress farms on Oahu has decreased markedly over the last year, due to continued efforts by farmers to rogue out infected, symptomatic plants, and to control the population of the insect vector, Macrosteles sp., in their fields.
