bruchid damage

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...

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...

Bruchids, such as the Mexican bean weevil, cause damage to pulses that make crops unattractive to the human food market, which is growing... Bruchids are little-known pests that leave holes in stored pulse grains - the kind of damage that is likely to result in a crop being rejected by export markets, which were worth an estimated $1.3 billion to Australian pulse producers in 2014-15... Their damage is more obvious in stored grain and growers should monitor their grain stores, ensure that they know how to identify bruchids and what their damage looks like (see fact box below)...
