D2.3 Report on the identification of new insect vectors and on the potential epidemiological cycles of GY, LY and HLB
The identification of new insect vectors and the potential epidemiological cycles of lethal yellowing, “huanglongbing” and grapevine yellows agents is reported according to the disease.
D3.4 Report on improved germplasm resistance/tolerance, features and performance
Screening for new varieties or genotypes for their resistance/tolerance to “huanglongbing” (HLB) in citrus was performed in Guadeloupe (France). The work on lethal yellowing (LY) of coconut palm was carried out in Ghana, Mexico and Jamaica. Differences in susceptibility to grapevine yellows (GY) among grapevine varieties suggest the existence of specific genetic features associated with resistance to the phytoplasmas and/or possibly with their insect vectors.
D5.6 Report on the implementation of Business Plan to participating farms
Conceived as an operation manual for the use of an on-line tool developed in the framework of the Italian FADN and designed as a Simplified Financial Statement (SFS). The main objective of this instrument is the assessment of farm performance, the implementation of impact and scenario analysis and the evaluation of farm sustainability.
