fumigant phosphine

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
In the current project, control protocols were developed for a Chinese rice weevil strain which is more resistant to phosphine than any Australian strains... Results from fumigation at different concentrations of phosphine confirmed the presence of a very high level of resistance in Chinese rice weevils... Results confirmed the presence of a very high level of resistance in this Chinese strain, even after five years without exposure to phosphine...

A large-scale evaluation of sulfuryl fluoride to control phosphine-resistant stored-grain pests has found that it offers a viable alternative to phosphine, which could help break the resistance cycle and extend the life of this important chemical... Led by Dr Manoj Nayak, the Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) has been working with the grains industry to develop sulfuryl fluoride as a phosphine-resistance breaker... Sulfuryl fluoride is used to fumigate closed structures to control a range of insect pests...
