Mr Buss has been cropping in the notoriously difficult climate of central Queensland for close to 30 years and, as with every other graingrower from that region, conversations do not run for long before weather and climate become the central issues... [Photo (left): Ian Buss] Mr Buss had a "reasonable" winter harvest in 2006, despite the crop being hit hard by hail - for the second year in succession, a coincidence unheard of in the region, but then maybe that is 'climate change'... And talking of opportunities, Mr Buss believes the Australian grains industry is looking at a great one right now, perhaps the best outlook in the 30 years he has been involved...

The only available management options for other major pests, particularly podsucking bugs and podborers, have the potential to derail IPM because they are highly disruptive to beneficial insects... Additional major IPM issues are the ever present resistance threat to the new generation pesticides targeting Helicoverpa armigera, the eventual likely deregistration by the APVMA of dimethoate (the only effective mirid and aphicide in grain crops), and the ongoing need for multi-pest IPM to reduce the risk of silverleaf whitefly (SLW)... Ongoing RD&E is clearly needed to address these issues and to continually improve and maximise the adoption of IPM throughout the GRDC Northern Region...
