UK sugar beet growers will have access to Cruiser SB neonicotinoid seeds this season

Thursday, March 2, 2023
The virus yellows forecast was released on 1st March. It is important to remember that this forecasts the proportion of the crop that is expected to show virus yellows symptoms in the absence of any control measures. It is a national forecast based on a 30th March sowing date. The forecasted incidence of virus yellows for 2023 is 67.5%. The date of the first arrival of aphids in crops in 2023 is forecasted from 22nd April. The forecasted virus level is above the threshold of 63% required to trigger the use of Cruiser SB on seed in 2023. In 2020, the forecast was 85% with a first arrival date of aphids of 24th March. Last year, the forecast was 69% with an expected aphid flight date of 18th April.
