Abstract:A study of screen collections of the turnip aphis (Rhopalosiphum Pseudobrassicae) and analyses of the infestations on 30 plantings in several trucking communities show that the infestation of the various plantings has a definite influence on other plantings in the same community. Neglect in controlling an infestation or failure to prevent its spread by plowing the crops under before heavy migration of the aphids begins means the difference between profit and loss to that community.
