  • Rhopalosiphum padi L. (Hemiptera: Aphididae) is an important pest of wheat, oat, barley, rye and other gramineous crops in the world.
  • It can sometimes directly affect grain yield by sucking nutrients from these plants, but causes the most serious damage when it transmits a group of viruses that are collectively called yellow dwarf viruses (YDVs) to cereal crops and grasses. [1]
  • Common Name: bird cherry-oat aphid
