Sugarcane Aphid Identification and Estimation Techniques in Sorghum

As part of the insect lockdown pest profiles series, Jason Thomas quickly details the way to identify the sugarcane aphid (melanaphis sacchari), a pest of sorghum, and how to estimate the population density of this insect. A mastery of these skills can help farmers and pest managers to better control for this insect and save money that could be lost due to reductions in yield and equipment damage caused by this aphid.
