Wanted: peach–potato aphids

Thursday, 10 October 2019

As part of a UK aphid-monitoring programme, Rothamsted Research requires live peach–potato aphid samples.

Typically, most samples come from oilseed rape crops in East Anglia. However, to help establish the spread of insecticide resistance in the UK, samples from other regions are required.

To submit a sample, follow the aphid sampling protocol on the Insecticide Resistance Action Group (IRAG) page: ahdb.org.uk/irag
