Potato leafhopper, Empoasca fabae (Harris) (Homoptera: Cicadellidae), is a well-known pest of alfalfa in eastern North America. Its unique injury is associated with changes in host plant physiology, yet research to date has focused on the whole plant response. We conducted studies to determine the feeding site preference of nymphs and adults on alfalfa plants, and to measure the impact of leaf and stem feeding on subsequent photosynthesis and stomatal conductance of leaves. Our observations of… CONTINUE READING
