MYZUS PERSICAE RESISTANCE ALERT

Tags: , , ,

A total of 93 Myzus persicae populations from stone fruit orchards and other crops in S. Europe were sampled and analysed to determine the resistance status. The results confirm the presence of neonicotinoid-resistant aphids in many of the stone fruit orchards of southern France and North East Spain as well in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The surveys have yet to identify any resistant aphids in other crops. IRAC has worked with local agricultural ministry officials, and entomological experts from Spain, France, Italy and the UK, to provide resistance management advice for the 2012 season.
