This article reports that according to Steve L. Brown, University of Georgia Extension entomologist, significant changes have occurred in peanut production over the past decade, many of which have impacted insect management. Tomato spotted wilt virus has caused tremendous changes over the past decade. Among other things, the virus has driven variety selection for the past 10 years. If a farmer doesn't have resistance to tomato spotted wilt in one's breeding program, the farmer is not going to make it.
