Data Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:

The raw data show cassava mealybug pest pressure & A. lopezi presence across all 600+ sampling locations in the broader SE Asia region.

Funding

This initiative was conducted as part of an EC-funded, IFAD-managed, CIAT-executed programme (CIAT-EGC-60-1000004285), while additional funding was provided through the CGIAR-wide Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Banana (CRP-RTB). The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
