Potato crops can be susceptible to aphids, as they migrate from the south and “look for anything green” when they arrive in Canada.

In this episode of Tuber Talk, Manitoba Agriculture’s Vikram Bisht provides some insight into these tiny pests and what growers can do to spot and treat any possible infestations that could occur this season. Bisht also talks about the work he is doing to track aphids and how farmers can help.
