Characterisation of Cydia pomonella granulovirus from codling moths in a laboratory colony and in orchards of British Columbia
Annals of Applied Biology 134 (3), 285-291
Abstract: Sequence analyses indicate that a granulovirus isolated from a laboratory colony of codling moth in British Columbia, Canada is identical or very similar to the Mexican isolate of Cydia pomonella granulovirus (CpGV-M). In addition to codling moth, the virus was found to cause mortality of secondary leafroller pests of North American orchards, including the fruit tree leafroller and the obliquebanded leafroller. A survey in apple growing regions of British Columbia indicates that 23% of the wild population of codling moth larvae carry CpGV.
