A greenhouse trial investigated the uptake of cadmium and zinc by the bird-cherry oat aphid (Rhopalosiphum padi) feeding on wheat grown on sewage sludge amended soil. The trial was conducted at application rates of 0, 5, 7.5, 10, 15 and 20 tonnes ha(-1) dry solids. Concentrations of Cd and Zn were within current UK limits for potentially toxic elements in soils amended with sewage sludge. Cd and Zn in wheat plants were significantly greater than controls. Batches of aphids feeding on the wheat also showed a significant increase in the uptake of Cd and Zn. This study demonstrates a potential route of exposure to Cd and Zn for the predators of cereal aphids.
