Abstract

The major pests of cereals: aphids, wheat bulb fly (Delia coarctata) and slugs are discussed in relation to their life histories, damage potential and current control practices. Future developments in pest control are discussed in relation to possible changes in the Common Agricultural Policy and legislation regarding agricultural practices.  It is suggested that the most important research areas are the development of simple monitoring methods, accurate forecasting systems and the establishment of damage thresholds.
