Fumigating with Phosphine, other fumigants and controlled atmospheres.. Phosphine remains the single-most relied upon fumigant to control stored grain pests in Australian grain production systems, but continued misuse is resulting in poor insect control and developing resistance in key pest species... Fumigating with Phosphine, other fumigants and controlled atmospheres covers topics such as pressure testing, silo safety and the application of both phosphine and other options...

Phosphine needs seal of approval.. Limiting correctly applied phosphine to sealed storages and is the only way to economically control all insects regardless of resistance level or growth stage... The higher the level of resistance, the higher the concentration of phosphine and/or the longer the fumigation period required to control all the life stages of the insect (figure 1)...

Stored grain: New fumigant to secure clean grain phosphine.. A joint partnership between CSIRO and the GRDC is setting up alternatives to phosphine fumigation and chemicals facing environmental phase-outs By Melissa Marino and Rebecca Thyer In what was mostly a grim year for the grains industry in 2006, some good news has arrived in the perennial battle to control stored grain insect pests, with researchers developing an environmentally safe and easy-to-use alternative to phosphine... [Photo (left) by Brad Collis: Dr Colin Waterford: "Grain can be treated one day and shipped the next."..

The major advantage of fumigation with phosphine (often referred to as bombing or gasing using Fostoxin, Fumitoxin etc) is that insects can be controlled without moving the grain... Phosphine gas moves readily through grain from the point of application... See the full report on insect management in stored grains for: information on phosphine detectors guidelines for staying safe when using phosphine improving effectiveness with phosphine shortcuts for quick treatment of grains..

The work was initiated because of the ease with which grain insects became resistant to protectants and also because high levels of resistance to phosphine had been reported from India and Bangladesh... , some level of resistance had already been detected in insects from Australia... The method used has been to collect samples of insects from farms, central storages and grain merchant premises...
