<p> Aphids are serious pests of crop plant species, and host plant resistance is often the most effective and environmentally friendly control strategy to control these pests. One of these aphid pests is the black currant - lettuce aphid, <em>Nasonovia ribisnigri</em> (Mosely), an economically important pest of cultivated lettuce, <em>Lactuca sativa </em>L. Host plant resistance has been used since 1982 to control this aphid species and is mediated by the <em>Nr</em>-gene, originating from wild lettuce <em>Lactuca virosa </em>L. However, this resistance is not effective anymore, since <em>N. ribisnigri </em>aphids virulent to the <em>Nr-</em>resistance have been...
