cutworms

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
Risk factors: Coastal crops planted into cane trash blankets are at potential risk from the sugar cane armyworm... Occasional (rare) plague outbreaks of common and northern armyworms may occasionally spill over into peanuts from more favoured hosts... In-furrow sprays are registered for control at planting but trying to control cutworms in pegging crops with dense canopies is problematic due to poor coverage...

Winter cereals include wheat, barley, oats, canary and triticale... Insects are not normally a major problem in winter cereals but there will be times when they build up to an extent that control may be warranted... Small larvae take 8-10 days to reach a size capable of head lopping, so if small larvae are found in crops nearing full maturity/harvest no spray may be needed, whereas small larvae in late crops which are still green and at early seed fill may reach a damaging size in time to significantly reduce crop yield...

Grain growers in New South Wales and Victoria are advised to closely monitor crops for cutworms which have been causing extensive crop damage... Dr McDonald says that in Victoria, large numbers of cutworms have caused extensive damage to canola and cereal crops in the Wimmera district, as well as to a variety of crops in the north central region... Monitoring is crucial, particularly after small patches begin to appear...

There are a number of soil insects that can damage establishing crops... Soil insects are often difficult to detect as they hide under trash or in the soil... Other soil insects are common, but do not damage crops...
