What is Potato Virus Y?

The spread of potato virus Y

The virus mainly overwinters in the poisonous potato block, which is the main initial source of disease after sowing. In the field, PVY, PVS, and PLRV can transmit poison through friction between aphids and sap.

High temperature and drought, extensive field management, numerous aphids, and serious diseases. The high temperature above 25 °C reduces the host's resistance to the virus, is conducive to the reproduction, migration and disease transmission of the virus vector aphids, which makes the disease spread rapidly and aggravates its damage.

In addition, variety resistance and cultivation measures greatly affect the degree of disease.
