PestFacts South Australia and Western Victoria co-ordinators say that cultural practices have a significant impact on insect populations in field crops and a number of basic steps over the summer and pre-sowing period can help increase the chances of a successful start next season... Summer weeds provide a 'green bridge' for pests such as aphids, mites, snails and diamondback moth to survive on over the hot summer months," 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.. Mr Perry recommends that growers identify paddocks at higher risk of pest pressure and carefully monitor them in the autumn prior to sowing susceptible crops...

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).

Time to consider insect pest control measures South Australian and Western Victorian grain growers are being encouraged to take measures over the coming months to reduce the impact of insect pests in next year's crops...

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...
