imaging technology

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...

Speaking at a recent Albany Port Zone RCSN meeting at Frankland River in WA's southern region, Ms Micic said the study was looking at slug emergence, control options for small conical snails, and new technologies targeting slugs and snails... "The information gained will feed into a model that aims to improve the predictability of slug movements, so that growers can make better baiting decisions," Ms Micic said... Yield losses in cereal crops appear to be more prevalent in dry conditions, when slugs cause damage early in the growing season, impairing plant growth and making it difficult for plants to outgrow damage," she said...
