A new whitefly species emerges as
a pest of cereals in Central America

The Whitefly IPM Task Force advised that three whitefly problems should be prioritized for research and development efforts in the Tropics:

1) Whiteflies as pests in tropical highlands;
2) Whiteflies as virus vectors in mixed cropping systems; and
3) Whiteflies as vectors and pests in cassava

Within the CGIAR framework for an eco-regional problem approach, the Tropical Whitefly IPM Project was structured into 6 subprojects:

Whiteflies as pests in the tropical highlands

Subproject 1 >
Whiteflies as pests in the tropical highlands of Latin America

Coordinator > Dr. César Cardona

This subproject has been supported by the:

Whiteflies as virus vectors in mixed cropping systems

Subproject 2 >
Whiteflies as vectors of viruses in mixed cropping systems in the tropical lowlands of Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean

Coordinator > Dr. Francisco Morales

Subproject 3>
Whiteflies as vectors of viruses in mixed cropping systems in Eastern and Southern Africa

Coordinator > Dr. Lisbeth Riis

Subproject 4 >
Whiteflies as vectors of viruses in mixed cropping systems in South and South East Asia

Coordinator > Dr. Peter Hanson

Whiteflies as virus vectors and pests in cassava

Subproject 5 >
Whiteflies as vectors of viruses in cassava and sweetpotato in Sub-saharan Africa

Coordinator > Dr. James Legg

Subproject 6 >
Whiteflies as pests of cassava in South America

Coordinator > Dr. Anthony Bellotti
