Evaluation of Harpin for the Control of Insect-Vectored Bacterial Wilt of Pumpkin and Testing of PMR-Pumpkin and Squash Varieties for Their Reaction to Beetle Feeding Activity and Bacterial Wilt Inoculations
McGrath, Margaret Tuttle; Zitter, Thomas A.; Hoffmann, Michael P.; Beer, Steven V.
The goals of this project were 1) to determine if harpin can suppress the transmission of bacterial wilt (BW) vectored by cucumber beetles and 2) to compare cucurbit crops and varieties for their attractiveness to cucumber beetles and susceptibility to bacterial wilt.
