Abstract

The release of a synthesised analogue of the aphid alarm pheromone, (E)-Beta-farnesene from dispensers sited in winter wheat crops significantly affected the activity of carabid beetles, aphid numbers on plants and levels of aphid parasitism.
The potential uses of this approach for the management of aphids is discussed.
