, a forum to allow stakeholder participation, i.e., provide feedback, review information contained in the database and discuss pesticide related research initiatives, would occur... The outputs of the database will be presented to stakeholders such as researchers, regulators and registrants with a view to providing information and seeking feedback on the research either underway or proposed... The intent of the project is to firstly provide better co-ordination whereby researchers can check what has been done previously as well as provide a mechanism to inform other key stakeholders, such as registrants, of what research is being done where...

Sucking pests like aphids are an emerging problem in Australian grain crops due, in part, to the use of synthetic pesticides which suppress predator populations and encourage the development of insecticide resistance... A supplementary approach to the management of these pests is the use of naturally occurring fungal pathogens of these insects... The ultimate aim of this project is to develop a biopesticide for the management of sucking pests, including the delivery of information required in the successful registration of the product in Australia...

In summary, 20 trials have now recently been undertaken across a number of seasons and locations in NSW. None of them have demonstrated S responses in yield or oil %. This does not exclude deficiency and yield penalties from occurring but does highlight that the frequency and the likelihood is not high... Delaying any action that has the potential to cease grain fill will see more seeds achieve their maximum size and improve yield... In summary there was no 'concerning' level of seed loss observed at any trial or timing, correlating well with the yield data...
