  "abstract": "<p>The main goal of the project was to generate more information on insect vectors of bacteria and phytoplasmas of phytosanitary concern, more specifically: a) on phloem and xylem feeding insects that should be tested as possible vectors for bacteria and phytoplasmas b)&nbsp;on the fruit and field crop range that the vectored bacteria and phytoplasmas cause damage to c)&nbsp;on the capability of the insects to vector specific bacteria and phytoplasmas of phytosanitary concern d)&nbsp;on the specific association between vector and plant pathogen.</p>\n\n<p>The main objectives of the project were to gain insight into the following questions:</p>\n\n<p>-Should yet-unknown phloem and xylem feeding insects (Auchenorryncha) be regarded as vectors of the pathogens in selected major crops in Europe?</p>\n\n<p>-What monitoring and trapping techniques are optimal to efficiently survey the phloem and xylem feeding insect vectors?</p>\n\n<p>-Are there reliable and validated diagnostic tools available to detect/monitor the prokaryotic plant pathogens inside the vectors?</p>\n\n<p>-Can we generate extra information on the transmission pathways by monitoring phloem and xylem feeding insect vectors in and around selected infested fields?</p>\n\n<p>-Can we generate extra information on the host range of the prokaryotic pathogens by performing vector-transmission trials between different test crops?</p>\n\n<p>-Can we reduce the number of treatments of pesticides due the better understanding of relation vector/pathogen/environment and thereby enable a better integrated management of vectors and diseases&nbsp; in the crops.</p>",
