Description

Abstract Text:
Halyomorpha halys (St?l) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae), an introduced species from Asia, has the potential to become a major pest in ornamentals and is a pest in tree fruit in the Mid-Atlantic in the United States. Halyomorpha halys has a wide host range including tree fruit, vegetables, and ornamental plants. In its native habitat, H. halys causes crop loss due to stippling, catfacing and bruising of plants and transmits a plant pathogen responsible for Paulownia Witches Broom. Overwintering adults emerge in early spring and is believed to complete one generation per year in the Northeastern United States. The extent of its spread and host range in the United States is known; however its range continues to expand. At the current time it is present in California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Studying the spread of this insect, it's DNA and potential control methods will lead to a better understanding of how H. halys behaves in its new habitat. Successful completion of this project will help New Jersey farmers and in other parts of the country to produce commodities that safe for consumption, allow them to better compete in varied markets while preserving our natural resources and environment.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
