IVIA researchers test new robotic systems for the early detection of ‘Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum’

In the course of the work carried out within the POnTE WP6 “Field and automated surveillance systems for vector and disease monitoring”, coordinated by Dr. Jose Blasco, a remote-controlled agricultural robot, which is equipped with high-resolution cameras, multispectral visible and infrared cameras and cameras capable of obtaining thermal images, has been developed. The robot travels […]

Authors: M. S. Sisterson, D. C. Stenger Published online: 18 Januart 2018 Source: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ppa.12833/abstract Abstract: Deployment of resistant varieties is a key strategy to mitigating economic losses due to arthropod-transmitted plant pathogens of perennial crops. In many cases, the best available resistant traits for introgression confer only partial resistance. Plants displaying partial resistance have lower […]
