In-field Aphid Monitoring with Yellow Water Traps – Seed Potatoes

The Aphid Monitoring web shop is now open:

Following consultation with existing customers and stakeholders, we’re pleased to confirm that Fera will be providing its industry-critical aphid monitoring programme for the 2024 season utilising the same reporting and alert platform as previous years.

We are offering the same service, including up to 10 samples analysed per trap site.

The service will include provision of:

  • A trap
  • Sample pots to return samples to us in
  • Reply-paid envelopes
We will require your permission to publish results anonymously as is done currently and to map these as we do now. You can see how this is done here. You will have the option to opt in to this. Only people who are paying for the service will have access to the website.

The cost for this service will be £526 (exc. VAT) per trap site per season, payable in advance prior to submitting the first sample. You will be able to place orders for this service via our website and pay by card.

The original service, which started in 2004, was supported with levy board funding and we have been working with AHDB to coordinate a smooth transition into the forthcoming season.
