Barnes and Newton1 described tumours in alfalfa caused by a leaf-hopper. They concluded that these were induced by a substance in the insect's saliva, “probably some growth regulator rather than a virus”, and that individual plants vary in their sensitivity to this substance. Examinations of the balsam woolly aphid, Adelges piceae (Ratz.), have led to similar conclusions2.
