What to do
 
Best use

Seed varieties: Use Biscaya as the 3rd and 5th sprays to target colonising and non-colonising aphids. Ware varieties: Estima, Maris Piper, King Edward, Desiree and Russet Burbank are also prone to viral infections.

Peach potato aphid remains the main threat in England; a most efficient viral vector with three detected resistance types, but kdr-resistant grain aphids  have recently been identified across UK.
