Abstract

DURING a survey of the South African coastal areas, a test was devised for deciding if the climate of a maritime area was suitable for growing seed potatoes. It needs only the simplest apparatus, and has both practical and theoretical advantages over the current method of aphid surveys, which it might well supplement or replace.
