Speaking at a recent Albany Port Zone RCSN meeting at Frankland River in WA's southern region, Ms Micic said the study was looking at slug emergence, control options for small conical snails, and new technologies targeting slugs and snails... "The information gained will feed into a model that aims to improve the predictability of slug movements, so that growers can make better baiting decisions," Ms Micic said... Yield losses in cereal crops appear to be more prevalent in dry conditions, when slugs cause damage early in the growing season, impairing plant growth and making it difficult for plants to outgrow damage," she said...

Don't let snails eat into your crop profits.. "Controlling summer weeds is important as it means that snails are more likely to eat baits, which should be applied before snails lay eggs, which occurs generally in late summer or early autumn," she said... "Snails causing damage to WA crops are predominantly small conical snails, although round snails are also a problem at Esperance, Hopetoun and in parts of the Geraldton port zone," she said...

The South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) Entomology Unit warns that snails present above cutting height in the canopy or in windrows can enter the header during harvest, potentially leading to clogging of machinery and grain quality downgrades... "At this time of year, the aim is to minimise the intake of snails into the header, maximise the separation of snails and grain within the header, and where necessary, clean harvested grain to minimise the number of snails eventually entering the grain sample," Mr Perry said... Sheet metal (punch-hole and expanded mesh) sieves are usually more effective than louvre sieves in removing snails but have a lower cleaning throughput harvest speed may need to be reduced to avoid overloading and grain losses...
