The best approach to managing helicoverpa is to use a combination of both chemical and non-chemical tools... By considering the ecology of H. armigera and H. punctigera , several key principles emerge that will assist in the successful and sustainable management of these pests... Insect-resistant genetically modified (GM) cotton has been developed to produce a highly specific toxin that kills helicoverpa larvae that feed on the cotton plant...

The majority of insect species present in these landscapes, especially pests, are good at moving between these habitats and seeking out the resources they need, such as food and shelter for all or part of the year... There is a strong interest in developing integrated pest management (iPm) on a large scale because pests are mobile... Pest suppressive landscapes will have the right mix of habitats that support beneficial insects and allow them to move into crop fields, but discourage the build-up of pests...

The publication has been prepared in good faith on the basis of information available at the date of publication... Products may be identified by proprietary or trade names to help readers identify particular types of products but this is not, and is not intended to be, an endorsement or recommendation of any product or manufacturer referred to... There is huge scope in the available moisture stored in the soil provided the right approaches are taken to issues such as crop nutrition, seeding systems and crop management...

The findings are from a nationally coordinated project supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) which aims to understand which landscape features contribute to the control of pest populations in crops... Ms Micic said that data taken from remnant vegetation in WA showed that insect pests were more likely to be found on weeds, while beneficial species were more likely to be found on native plant species... "Remnant bushland containing few weeds may reduce the number of pest species and at least delay the build-up of pests in crops during the growing season," she said...

Mouse populations remain high in many parts of eastern Australia and have the potential to cause substantial yield loss as crops begin to mature... The proportion of mice killed did not vary with mouse density, indicating that higher baiting rates would not improve the kill rate... The research team, which included UQ's Rebecca Diete and Natalie Walker and Tony Pople from the Queensland Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation, found that self-regulation of populations starts when mouse densities are greater than 500 mice per hectare in maturing wheat and sorghum crops...

Red-legged earthmites (RLEM) cause millions of dollars of damage to crops each year, and due to a cool start to the growing season causing the pests to hatch in April, now is the time for RLEM control... SARDI entomology researcher Kym Perry says growers should not assume that preventative treatments applied at sowing will be an effective solution against pests... RLEM attacks most crops and feeds on all stages of plants, though is particularly damaging to seedlings in autumn...

The website, http://ipmguidelinesforgrains.com.au , offers detailed information and advice on the management of major insect pests within Australia's major grain crops including specific recommendations for each stage of crop development... Created by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) Entomology team in conjunction with collaborators in all grain growing regions of Australia, the website will equip growers and advisors with the latest industry advice to minimise production loss and implement effective, long-term pest management practices on a whole-of-farm basis... DAFF Senior Extension officer, Entomology, Kate Charleston, said the IPM Guidelines took a problem-solving approach as opposed to being a rigid set of management guidelines, drawing on all available pest management tools to tailor recommendations according to crop type, growth stage and location...
