Aphid Banker Plant
Wheatgrass infested with bird cherry oat aphids (Rhopalosiphon padi) which are supplemental food for Aphidius Colemani, a parasitoid for green peach, cotton and melon aphids. This creates a self-sustained system that provides a continual supply of Aphidius Colemani which disperses into the greenhouse in search of pests.
Crops Not Compatible:
Easter lilies, Alstroemeria, ornamental grasses, orchids, daylilies, irises, tulips, daffodils, palms, sweet corn, onions and garlic, and plants in the cabbage family.
- Minimum of two aphid banker plants per acre at the start of the season.
- Must change aphid banker every two weeks in order for the system to work effectively.
