Green vegetable bugs (GVB) and brown bean bugs (BBB) are equally damaging to pulse crops but green vegetable bugs (GVB) are considered a more important pest due to their abundance, widespread distribution and rate of reproduction... The damage potential of other pod sucking pests is not as great as GVB but they can cause severe damage when present in large numbers... Using the example above - if you find that the three GVB and one RBSB are 2nd instars instead of adults and the two BSB are 4th instars - an additional calculation is required to convert these instars into adult equivalents...

The prospect of capturing higher grain prices can be tempting but in some circumstances investing large sums of money in on-farm grain storage could prove a costly mistake... "You need to work out exactly how much the storage could earn and compare that to expected returns from other farm business investments such as buying more land, a chaser bin, a wider boomspray, a second truck or paying off debt," Mr Warrick said... The template also contains calculations to work out the fixed costs of on-farm storage such as the annualised capital costs of all of the infrastructure, site works, concrete and equipment, as well as the opportunity cost of capital...

Helicoverpa is less damaging in peanuts than other legume crops but high populations can inflict significant damage... Peanuts have a high tolerance of defoliation with high populations of 12/m 2 having little impact on yield in well grown crops... Good agronomy and soil moisture are crucial as large, vigorously-growing plants suffer less defoliation for a given helicoverpa population and have less risk of damage...
