A mathematical model of crop vector-borne epidemic with vital dynamics

Michael Chapwanya*, Yves Dumont

Abstract


Identifying key factors in the spread of vector-borne diseases is an essential step in designing control strategies.  Among all plant diseases, vector-borne diseases are the most threatening because a large number of organisms are able to transmit plant pathogens. Also, compared to human or animal viruses, plant viruses have different and complex transmission ways, such that their control is more difficult. That is why it is important to study the interactions between the plant, the vector and the virus. ...
