    Abstract

    Potato virus Y (PVY, genus Potyvirus, family Potyviridae) causes high economic losses worldwide, especially in the production of seed potatoes (Solanum tuberosum). PVY control systems rely on measuring virus pressure and vector pressure in the field. Calculation of the vector pressure is based on the relative efficiency factors (REFs) of aphid species, which express the transmission efficiency of aphid species in relation to the efficiency of Myzus persicae, the most efficient vector of PVY. In the Netherlands, in the 1980s, aphid’s REFs were determined using aphids caught alive in the field. Thus, experiments were conducted using limited numbers of aphids and only during the potato growing season. We have now developed a system which allows us to test virus transmission whole year round, using aphid clones reared in insect chambers
