Strategies to deal with the threat posed by aphids

Winter cereal plantings are continuing apace this week, albeit growers are grabbing every chance they have through the bands of rain every 2 -3 days.

Last year BYDV was a problem on many farms, and not only farms with early sown crops, but later sown crops in the south of the country were also badly affected in places.
