Mouse monitoring a must to reduce crop damage risk.. NMMWG chair Ian Hastings says that monitoring must continue to occur on a paddock-by-paddock basis and growers should be prepared to bait immediately after sowing where higher than normal activity is identified. ".. Some breeding has been occurring and in those areas where mice caused significant damage last year or where paddocks are at high risk, considerable precautions must be taken."..

Although not often immediately thought of when 'crop pest' is mentioned, vertebrate animals (birds, mice, pigs, rabbits, wild dogs and kangaroos) can be a major problem in certain field cropping situations, with the potential to cause major damage to crops or property... Whether an animal becomes a pest can also be influenced by environmental conditions, for example drought can force animals into cropping areas or excellent seasonal conditions can promote breeding cycles... Native animals can become pests of crops or pose a threat to humans...

Our study shows that globulin extracts had significantly higher emulsifying capacity (EC) than albumin extracts and SoyPI at all pH values tested (Figure 1)... The same trend was observed for SoyPI except for pH 9 at which SoyPI-stabilised emulsion had smaller droplet compared to that of globulin extracts even though the EC was not as good...
