Abstract 

1 Recommended and reduced rate applications of pirimicarb and alpha-cypermethrin were applied to winter wheat crops to control summer infestations of grain aphid (Sitobion avenae) and rose-grain aphid (Metopolophium dirhodum).

2 Aphid numbers were assessed weekly and the yield response to treatment application was compared with accumulated aphid days on the crop.

3 Responses to aphicide treatment varied between sites according to variations in the subsequent development of aphid populations under varying weather conditions and differential pressures from aphid natural enemies.

4 Alpha-cypermethrin treatment reduced spider density at most sites, and also resulted in a resurgence of aphid populations at three sites.
