Influence of aphid-rearing plants and the developmental forms of the aphid on the transmission of cowpea mosaic virus
Aphis craccivora reared on Vigna sinensis, Vicia faba and Pisum salivum plants were almost equally efficient in transmitting cowpea mosaic virus. In another test, there was no recognizable difference in the transmission efficiency of the three developmental forms (winged adults, wingless adults and nymphs) of the aphid.
