"Growers should be using a number of techniques at the same time - chemical and cultural - that when combined provide sufficient control to reduce numbers to levels where a susceptible crop, particularly canola, is able to withstand the low numbers that remain," Mr Midwood says... "Evidence would suggest that burning the stubble gives you a better level of control of slugs because you're removing the habitat," Mr Midwood says. ".. "Press wheels tick the box from the crop emergence point of view, but if you're sowing on a 200 to 300-millimetre row spacing and you're using a narrow press wheel, there's all that area in between the rows where there's no consolidation of soil, so it's easy for slugs to move between the rows," he says...

Some rural supply stores are reported to have sold more slug bait than glyphosate, highlighting just how much of an issue slugs have become... IPM Technologies' Dr Paul Horne says the two slug species in south-east Australia that are the perpetrators of much HRZ crop damage are the black-keeled slug ( Milax gagates ) - usually found in drier areas - and the grey field slug ( Deroceras reticulatum ), found in wetter areas... "Slugs seem to be getting worse nearly every year, but we're getting better at managing them too," Troy says. "..

Slugs best beaten by baiting at sowing.. The planter was mounted with a bait applicator to apply slug bait in a 10-centimetre band directly above the row at seeding... To monitor slug numbers in spring and then at pre-sowing, Dr Nash says it is easier for growers to put down some cheap bait, leave it overnight and come back the following day to see how many slugs were killed, rather than using surface refuges such as tiles...
