AHDB: Dealing with aphids in Britain during 2020 and beyond

The management of aphids, particularly those that transmit viruses, has been a focus of concern for potato growers in recent seasons in Britain. AHDB (virtually) sat down with Crop Protection Senior Scientist for Pests, Dr Sue Cowgill, to talk monitoring, testing and research projects that will help growers manage the issue.

AHDB published an in-depth article based on the interview with Dr Cowgill and we re-publish it below. It can also be viewed on the AHDB website here.

Q: Growers have reported lots of aphid activity this summer, what are the reasons for this?
