03 5441 6176 03 5444 4299 admin@orm.com.au CAUTION: RESEARCH ON UNREGISTERED PESTICIDE USE Any research with unregistered pesticides or of unregistered products reported in this document does not constitute a recommendation for that particular use by the authors, the authors' organisations or the management committee... In summary, it could be argued that none of the currently available preemergence herbicides have the required stability in efficacy to become viable alternatives to postemergence group A or imidazolinone herbicides... Overall, 2012 seasonal conditions tended to favour early and mid flowering and maturing varieties...

MANDALOTUS WEEVILS ACTIVE: As Mandalotus weevils become active in parts of South Australia's grain belt, growers are advised that early detection is critical in preventing and reducing damage to germinating crops... According to the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Entomology Unit, the weevils have been reported actively feeding in the Murraylands and on Yorke Peninsula... Adults are known to attack seedlings of canola, lentils, beans, cereals, and medic pasture, with canola most susceptible to serious damage," 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).

Canola growers urged to check for destructive weevils As canola crops emerge and establish across the southern grain-growing region, growers are advised to keep an eye out for destructive Mandalotus weevils... The weevils have become an increasingly serious pest of young canola crops on lighter soil types, and early detection is critical in preventing and reducing damage to germinating plants... Mr Perry said little was previously known about the pest's basic biology, but the study is already revealing more about the number of species involved, their life history and host range - information which is critical for developing effective management strategies...
