Aphid Monitoring

5 March 2018

Aphid trapping 

Have you signed up?

You can sign up to be alerted to the first Peach Potato Aphid (Myzus persicae) found in a region or regions, and also when the index value in a region exceeds a given threshold (you have a choice of three thresholds).  You can select the locations of traps you want to monitor by choosing from upto 8 regions. (Note that the Myzus persicae alert will only be sent once per region per season, and that the 'high index value' alert will only be sent once per region per week and will occur when the first trap in a particular region has exceeded the chosen value.)

How it works

When you launch the Aphid Monitoring tool you will be taken to a website designed and hosted by the Food and Environment Research Agency near York.  Fera collates the data from 100 AHDB Potatoes levy funded traps throughout Britain.
