Correct use of fumigant in stored grain urged Australian growers in the fortunate position of having grain to store this year are being provided with timely support to ensure they protect their yields and safeguard their enterprises through the correct use of phosphine for controlling pests in stored grain... GRDC Manager of Extension and Grower Programs, Tom McCue, says phosphine remains the single-most relied upon fumigant to control stored grain pests in Australian grain production systems, but continued incorrect use is resulting in poor insect control and developing resistance in key pest species... To support growers in the effective application of phosphine, the GRDC has produced a valuable booklet, Fumigating with Phosphine, Other Fumigants and Controlled Atmospheres...

GrAin fumiGATiOn - A Guide in order to kill grain pests at all stages of their life cycle (egg, larva, pupa, adult), phosphine gas needs to reach, and be maintained at, a concentration possible only in a gas-tight storage... The total time required for effective fumigation ranges from 10-17 days, accounting for the minimum exposure period, ventilation and withholding period... To control pests at all life stages and prevent insect resistance, phosphine gas concentration needs to reach 300 parts per million (ppm) for seven days (when grain is above 25 C) or 200ppm for 10 days (between 15-25 C)...
