Authors: David Kenyon

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.
