Key Priorities and Recommendations
- Identify current levels of crop infection.
- Determine susceptibility of key crop groups to Scottish Lso haplotypes.
- Understand efficiency of T. anthrisci and other potential vector species.
- Potential mitigation strategies in the event of the introduction of B. cockerelli.
- Engage with international scientists working on Lso to enable our understanding of disease management strategies.
