Grain contamination by round and conical snails poses a serious threat to grain exports... Snails also cause damage to emerging crops and can clog machinery at harvest resulting in delays and frustration... Log in or register to leave a comment...

Grain growers are encouraged to implement strategies to avoid snail contamination of grain this coming harvest... S nails present above cutting height in the canopy or in windrows can enter the header during harvest, potentially leading to clogging of machinery and grain quality downgrades... Mr Kimber says with zero tolerance for bait contamination of grain, all snail baiting must be finished at least two months before harvest to ensure bait has broken down and does not itself become a contaminant...

Pest problems increasingly reflect a mix of crops grown..... Grain growers in New South Wales and Victoria are advised to closely monitor crops for cutworms which have been causing extensive crop damage... As Mandalotus weevils become active in parts of South Australia's grain belt, growers are advised that early detection is critical in preventing and reducing damage to germinating crops...

An integrated management strategy for white and conical snails in cereal, pulse and oilseed crops has been developed through this project and others supported by GRDC... Various grain cleaning alternatives were also assessed in other projects and their performance assessed and published in the manual... The releases of the fly conducted in the final few months of the project against the small pointed snail in the South East should also be assessed over the next two to three years to determine if it has established...

Reducing snail contamination a priority this harvest Grain growers in South Australia face a heightened risk of snails contaminating grain this harvest, resulting in potential downgrades and clogging of machinery... Options to reduce snail contamination are limited to minimising the intake of snails into the header, maximising the separation of snails and grain within the header, and post-harvest grain cleaning. ".. Sheet metal (punch-hole and expanded mesh) sieves are usually more effective than louvre sieves in removing snails but have a lower cleaning throughput harvest speed may need to be reduced to avoid overloading and grain losses...

Western Victorian harvest faces snail contamination risk.. If snails are present in crop canopies or windrows at harvest time, the options available to growers to reduce snail contamination are limited.".. Dr Umina said strategies to reduce snail intake are generally more effective when applied early in the harvest season when fewer snails are present in the crop canopy, snails are more easily dislodged from plants with lower grain losses, and they still respond to moisture events by descending down the plant canopy to resume feeding...
