A simple and versatile system is described for rearing cereal aphids. The rearing unit consists of a disposable 35 ml polystyrene cup, with cardboard lid, which contains a young cereal seedling growing on a cottonwool ball saturated with nutrient solution. The units have been used successfully for maintaining virus-free colonies of aphids, conducting transmission tests for barley yellow dwarf viruses with several species of aphids, assessing the infectivity of aphids (alatae and apterae… CONTINUE READING
