The second phase of the maize streak virus project, whilst continuing to study the important aspects of the epidemiology of the disease, concentrated on the development of management strategies for maize streak virus disease (MSVD) based on cultural control practices that are acceptable to farmers. These were developed through an understanding of the behaviour of the leafhopper vectors and their role in MSVD spread within maize plots and between maize plantings.
