Floriculture in India is still in its infancy. Raising of flowers for commercial purpose is still limited to progressive gardeners around big cities. The aesthetic sense of people to decorate their home and hearth with flowers is increasing day by day. As the demand for fresh flowers is on the increase, more and more area is being brought under floriculture, ornamental trees and shrubs etc. Chrysanthemum is one of the most important crops under floriculture, having high cut flower production however, productivity and marketability are decreasing considerably due to insect pest damage, particularly by aphids causing economic loss to the growers. Hence it is imperative to know something about the aphids that attack and affect yields of chrysanthemum in brief.
