Western Australian barley breeder Reg Lance has retired after almost 40 years in the Australian grains industry... He worked with the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) for more than 20 years, where his legacy to the industry includes the popular malting variety BaudinA, released in 2002 to replace Gairdner for medium to high-rainfall areas... Originally from Canada, Dr Baldock has led nine GRDC-funded projects since the 1990s, and has contributed to more sustainable cropping and mixed-farming systems across the southern grains region, especially in the Mallee...

You intend using a residual protectant to treat infested grain - pyrimiphos-methyl, fenitrothion and chlorpyrifos-methyl are ineffective against lesser grain borer, and pyrimiphos-methyl and fenitrothion are generally ineffective against sawtoothed grain beetle... you intend using dichlorvos to treat infested grain - if lesser grain borer is present you need to apply the higher dose rate... Some text regarding species above was sourced from Insects of Stored Grain - A Pocket Reference , David Rees (1994), Stored Grains Research Laboratory , CSIRO Division of Entomology, GPO Box 1700, Canberra, ACT, 2601, Australia...
