"After the treatment, we had a good stand of oats, clover and annual ryegrass and were able to use this for two intensive grazing periods in June and July," he says... Bryan says a combination of improved pasture paddocks prepared earlier in the year, deferred grazing on long-term grazing paddocks and some crop grazing is ideal to set up paddocks for his lambing period... "The additional annual ryegrass and weeds stimulated by cultivation can then be controlled by a 'hay freezing' technique - using glyphosate or paraquat - after the clover has set seed in later spring," he says...

WA growers are this year being urged to test redlegged earth mites (RLEM) that survive insecticide treatments... As part of a GRDC-funded national project, CSIRO and Department of Agriculture and Food WA (DAFWA) researchers will this year continue to test properties across the State where RLEM are found to survive insecticide treatments... If RLEM survive registered rates of insecticide treatments, or there is suspicion that mites resistant to chemicals are present on a property, contact DAFWA's broadacre entomologists to have mites sampled and tested...

WA has RLEM resistance to synthetic pyrethroids (SP) confirmed on 49 properties.. RLEM from a WA property were found in 2014 with both SP resistance and tolerance to the organophosphate (OP) omethoate.. Ms Micic says if a TIMERITE spray is used in spring to reduce mite numbers in a paddock that will be cropped to canola, it is vital to continue monitoring that paddock in autumn for RLEM...
