pest management option

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
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...

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...

Smaller grains industries are having difficulty gaining regulatory approval to access and use needed pest management options... The situation has arisen, primarily, due to a lack of commercial interest from registrants to either develop new pesticides or revise existing product labels to reflect new industry practices for generic pesticides... This can result in the use of unapproved pesticides or off-label pesticide use which can have adverse impacts through the occurrence of violative residues in export markets as well as affecting domestic Quality Assurance compliance and the development of stewardship and Best Management Programs...

Minor grains industries suffer from a lack of access to sufficient pesticide based pest management solutions... It is important that positive steps be taken to improve the number of pest management options available to growers of minor crops... The primary output of the project are Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) minor use permits allowing access to an increased number of approved insecticide, fungicide and herbicide options available to growers of minor grains and oilseed crops...

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...
