Northern pulse and grains IPM

Plain text source: 
The only available management options for other major pests, particularly podsucking bugs and podborers, have the potential to derail IPM because they are highly disruptive to beneficial insects... Additional major IPM issues are the ever present resistance threat to the new generation pesticides targeting Helicoverpa armigera, the eventual likely deregistration by the APVMA of dimethoate (the only effective mirid and aphicide in grain crops), and the ongoing need for multi-pest IPM to reduce the risk of silverleaf whitefly (SLW)... Ongoing RD&E is clearly needed to address these issues and to continually improve and maximise the adoption of IPM throughout the GRDC Northern Region...
