UK brussels sprout harvest hit by ‘super-pest’ moths

… consumers shopping for sprouts this year could have less choice than usual after some British-grown crops were ravaged by “super-pest” moths during the summer. … The problem has arisen as a result of an explosion in the numbers of diamondback moths arriving in the UK from Europe, which can cause huge damage to crops such as sprouts, cabbages and cauliflowers.

Add broccoli to that list of cruciferous b******s and I’ll happily start a diamondback moth appreciation society 🙂
