vegetative crop

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
Soybeans can be attacked by pests at any stage from seedlings to close to harvest, but are most attractive from flowering onwards... Soybeans set a large number of reserve pods and can compensate for insect damage during early podding by diverting energy to fill these reserve pods... Late bug damage is a major factor affecting seed quality...

Inspect plants thoroughly for any unusual damage symptoms.. Use integrated pest management to conserve beneficial insects.. As well as the usual mix of pests such as helicoverpa, mirids and podsucking bugs, this season northern growers also need to be on the lookout for soybean stem fly, bean podborer and etiella in vegetative soybeans says Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) researcher Hugh Brier...

Australian crop researchers are looking over the shoulders of scientists in Britain and New Zealand for effective strategies in dealing with diseases such as cereal rust in our high rainfall cropping zones (HRZ)... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is funding key research into disease management as cropping continues to expand into traditionally wetter regions of southern Australia... "Assuming disease was present, commencement of spraying at GS32 (second node - emergence of flag -2) resulted in the need to spray again at flag leaf emergence GS39, while spraying at GS33 (third node - targeting the emergence of flag -1) gave greater flexibility to use a second spray to combine a flag and early ear emergence spray at GS55 (50pc ear emergence on main stem)."..

Early action will help fight crop pests.. Some summer pests to watch out for in northern region pulses include soybean stem fly, lucerne crown borer ( Zygrita ), Etiella (lucerne seed web moth), grass blue butterfly, leaf-swarming beetles ( Rhyparidia species), Helicoverpa , Rutherglen bug and sorghum midge... Etiella , which is normally a pod feeder, has taken to attacking vegetative soybeans over the past two summers, with many reports from the Cecil Plains/Pampas regions on Queensland's Darling Downs, South Burnett in south-east Queensland and north-west NSW. Etiella, like the grass blue butterfly and leaf-swarming beetle, can damage vegetative crops in a similar manner to Helicoverpa , causing lopped terminals and stems...
