ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for farmers to be careful on using pesticides to prevent pollen beetle resistance in winter oilseed rape according to Great Britain's Agricultural Development and Advisory Service (ADAS). Insecticide-resistant species of the pest were found in Europe. Entomologist Jon Oakley notes that such species migrate in long distances. Based on a survey conducted by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), 58% of the crops were treated in 2004.
