  title={Reducing the immigration of suspected leafhopper vectors and severity of Australian lucerne yellows disease},
  author={Leigh J. Pilkington and Geoff Michael Gurr and Murray J. Fletcher and Eric Scott Elliott and A. Nikandrow and Helen I. Nicol},
Three newly-sown lucerne stands in the mid Lachlan Valley region of New South Wales, Australia, were sampled, over 50 weeks, for Australian lucerne yellows disease symptom distribution and severity. Leafhopper populations were also monitored. Symptoms developed in all 3 stands within 32 weeks of sowing. There were statistically significant spatial differences in the density of symptomatic plants for 2 dates at this and another site. Two possible insect vectors, Austroagallia torrida and… CONTINUE READING
