In this presentation, the biology of the phytoplasma causing Purple Top and its insect vector, the aster leafhopper, are discussed as well as potential management of the disease in potato production. The disease, its symptoms and impacts are reviewed and the epidemiology resulting from the life history, distribution and movement of the vector/pathogen complex is presented.
