Russian wheat aphid research at CIMMYT: current status and future goals
A few years ago, CIMMYT started working on the Russian Wheat Aphid (Diuraphis noxia) on a very small scale. Reports on the spread and damage due to this aphid's attack are on the increase in both developed and developing countries. Hence, during the last two crop cycles in Mexico, our efforts have grown substantially and are showing good results. On June 7, 1991, select CIMMYT wheat staff members met at EI Batan to review the current status of CIMMYT's RWA research and to define goals for the future. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions during that meeting. Those attending the meeting included Peter Burnett, Lucy Gilchrist, Gene Hettel, A. Mujeeb-Kazi, Gene Saari, Bent Skovmand, S. Rajaram, Jonathan Robinson, Maarten van Ginkel, George Varughese, and Hugo Vivar. The Appendices include some popular new releases emanating from Information Services, a brief mention of CIMMYT's RWA work in the August 19, 1991 issue of Time Magazine, and an up-to-date bibliography of recent scientific literature published on the RWA.
