All baiting must be completed by late August or at least two months before harvest, according to the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Entomology Unit... SARDI entomologist Kym Perry says very high snail populations this season increase the risk of snails becoming a grain contaminant at harvest, potentially clogging machinery or leading to downgrades. ".. The next few weeks are the last opportunity to bait to reduce snail populations prior to harvest now is the time to monitor and assess the need to bait," said Mr Perry, whose work is supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) investment in the National Invertebrate Pest Initiative (NIPI)...

BROME GRASS CONTROL SUPPORT: Grain growers challenged with the task of controlling the problematic brome grass are being provided with a new resource to support their weed management strategies... GRDC Southern Regional Panel chair David Shannon says brome grass competing early in wheat at a density of 100 plants per square metre can reduce yields by as much as 30 to 50 per cent. ".. The well-adapted weed has proliferated in the past decade, due to the absence of effective herbicides for its control in cereals, intensification of cropping systems, especially wheat on wheat, and the introduction of conservation tillage," Mr Shannon said.
