insect pest management

Catalogue: GRDC Media
The findings are from a nationally coordinated project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) which aims to understand which landscape features contribute to the control of pest populations in crops... "Remnant bushland containing few weeds may reduce the number of pest species and at least delay the build-up of pests in crops during the growing season," she said... She is now using computer simulations of landscapes to understand which management practices - within crops and pastures as well as native vegetation - affect pest populations by encouraging beneficial insects or reducing sources of pests...
