VirAphid (2011 - 2015)

Sustainable rules for managing virus and aphid evolution through host plant resistance

Plant resistances to pests and pathogens significantly reduce pesticide use, meeting the regulatory requirements and expectations of farmers and consumers. Deployment of plant resistances is limited by the possibilities of adaptation of pests and pathogens and the scarcity of resistance genes having a strong impact (major genes) among the genetic resources. To face these challenges, VirAphid offers new breeding criteria integrating resistance durability, as well as strategies to sustainably manage the resistances present in the varieties currently available.
