Lettuce Aphid Update

In an update to a story I posted last week, the Ministery of Agriculture and Fisheries in New Zealand has announced that it will not try to contain the spread of the Lettuce Aphid (Nasonovia ribis-nigri) that was discovered in and around the area of Christchurch. The decision was made due to the difficulties and high cost of eradicating the species. Farmers are being informed about the aphid but apparently will not be given any financial assistance to deal with infestations.
