Controlling aphids for early disease control locations
Aims

To answer the questions of whether applying a preventative spray regardless of conditions was good practice (i.e. does it help in controlling disease?) and was it cost effective?

Key messages

In the 2001 season there was no benefit from the application of an alphacypermethrin insecticide application to barley and lentil crops. The dry summer of 2000/2001 resulted in very few host plants for aphids and virus diseases and threshold levels for disease carry over potential were not reached. In wet summers with many host plants surviving it is possible that preventative spraying with alphacypermethrin could be worthwhile.
