The combined effects of changes in pest management needs, e.g., through resistance, regulatory activity, market access and registrant indifference with respect to generic pesticides, is placing increasing pressure on grains, pulse and oilseed industries to pursue gaining access to needed alternative pest and weed management options... A potentially serious outcome of the lack of pest management options can be the use of unapproved pesticides or inappropriate choices for pest control... The labels on haloxyfop products used for post-emergent grass control in canola crops are to be amended to overcome concerns that the 'Directions for Use' have the potential to be misinterpreted...

"Reports commissioned by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have found that losses would be much higher without the disease control measures used by growers," GRDC plant health senior manager Rohan Rainbow said... "The reports show that one single disease - blackleg in canola - has the potential to cause national losses of $331 million - but the actual cost is much reduced at $77 million by using current controls.".. Dr Rainbow said the figures in the reports reflected the achievements made in researching, developing and implementing disease controls in the Australian pulse and oilseed industries...

While APVMA minor use permits are potentially available for non-major industries, as a means of gaining access to pest management options, permits are not generally an option for major broadacre agricultural industries... It is proposed that PHA facilitates this program by providing essential management of the process though the distribution of research funds to consultants and contract research providers, contract management, liaison, sharing information between parties and submission of Category 25 applications to the APVMA...

The group's National Agricultural Survey of more than 600 farmers each year found that those in favour of GM crops increased from 19 per cent in 2002 to 32 per cent in 2004 and 49 per cent in 2006... Kondinin Group chief executive officer Dr William Ryan says the results show grower attitudes to this controversial topic are shifting, with more believing the technology will be beneficial to their farming operations... Australian oilseeds Opportunities discussed include increasing the supply of local oilseed meal to the stockfeed industry, the development of stable oils for frying which could compete with soybean and palm oil imports, and meeting the needs of niche markets for GM and non-GM oilseeds as they develop...

Growers do not have access to varieties with resistance to the key exotic pests and disease... The project will proceed in two phases... The project is about optimizing pesticide sprayapplications by: identifying spray technologies and spray settings with low risk of spraydrift, applying pesticides in accordance with latest knowledge about pest behaviour in response to pesticides andtherefore minimizes the risk of target pests developing resistance, and by using pesticides with documented efficacyagainst target pests...
