The article presents a forecast on the population growth of the orange wheat blossom midge during the warmer weather coming in Great Britain in the first week of June 2006. Pupation started last week at eight out of 13 sites being monitored for Dow AgroSciences by the British Agricultural and Advisory Service, with, in general, the more northerly sites the odd ones out. Hatching has been delayed further by cooler than expected temperatures over the bank holiday weekend. INSET: TANK MIX WARNING.
