bruchids

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
Bruchids breed rapidly in storage and by the time they are detected, the infested grain is usually unmarketable... Where grain temperatures are above 20 C, bruchid breeding continues unabated but unseen during the winter... While chickpea acid usually protects chickpea pods in the field from attack, bruchids can attack the seed after harvest...

If insects in grain are left untreated, the grain will, be unsaleable to most buyers, be reduced to dust by the insects feeding on it and go mouldy because of the heat and moisture released by the insects...

Key points most markets want grain free from insects and some want freedom from chemical residues, so check with potential buyers before you treat with chemicals clean grain handling and storage equipment and dispose of or treat old infested grain aeration cooling reduces insect activity, but may have to be used with other methods in summer chemical sprays are registered only for cereal grains, not pulses and oilseeds There are no simple short cuts for storing grain safely...

Cowpea bruchids are sometimes called cowpea weevils but they are not true weevils... Heavy bruchid infestations can lead to overheating of seed in storage, resulting in reduced quality (in addition to physical damage) and moulds... Eggs are laid on maturing pods in the field, but in storage are laid directly onto the seeds...
