The terms of the derogation had a trigger point that includes a forecast from the Rothamsted Research model, which incorporates data taken up until Feb. 28.

The latest forecast shows that less than 9% of sugar beets in the UK will be affected by the virus yellows by August, compared with 70-90% last year. This is thanks to the cold snap seen at the start of 2021, which is understood to have killed a good proportion of aphids and delayed their migration to the beet crop.
