control slug

Catalogue: GRDC Media
In-paddock imaging technology is being employed in research which aims to help growers better predict when slugs will be active on their properties, so they can better time baiting applications... The research is being conducted as part of a project investigating slug and snail monitoring and control methods, initiated by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Regional Cropping Solutions Networks (RCSN) initiative... Due to the sporadic nature of slug attacks, Ms Micic said the RCSN study had set up a field trial at Frankland with imaging technology to take photos every few minutes, along with a weather station, to correlate environmental cues with slug movement...

With sowing either underway or fast-approaching following widespread rain in early April, growers in the high rainfall zone (HRZ) of south-eastern Australia are being reminded to put in place slug control practices for the 2015 season... Monitoring of slugs by South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) researchers and time-lapse cameras suggest some slugs are starting to emerge from summer refuges, especially the surface active species... A key control option for growers to consider is rolling post-sowing, pre-emergence to help seedling establishment, limit soil clods that provide slug habitat and make it more difficult for slugs to find germinating seed...
