In the first year the trial consisted of four crops (lupin, canola, wheat and barley) planted into a pasture paddock along with self sown strips of pasture... Plant densities and damage by invertebrates was assessed at 14 and 28 days post-seeding... We observed that invertebrate species that are influenced by stubble retention practices such as bronzed field beetle, earwigs, were in higher numbers under crop residues than where stubble was absent...

Advice concerning the significance and control of the more common pests, or potential pests, of these crops is presented... Value of the crop (high value crops cannot sustain too much damage as a small loss in yield or quality could mean a large financial loss), the cost of the spray and its application and the likely yield or quality benefit gained from control... Crop monitoring Ongoing monitoring of crops and surrounding vegetation is essential to determine the presence of both pests and predators, and when, if any, intervention is required to keep pests at an acceptable level or, if feasible, boost predator numbers by introducing them into the system...

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...

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...

Mitey useful service to check for insecticide resistance.. The season, grain growers in the southern cropping region can access a free-of-charge service to determine whether redlegged earth mite (RLEM) populations within their crops are resistant to insecticides... The RLEM insecticide-resistance testing service is being made available to growers and their advisers through a national Grains Research and Development Corporation-funded project led by the University of Melbourne in collaboration with cesar , the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA), CSIRO and the University of WA...
