The widespread adoption of low tillage farming systems has changed the arthropod pest complex and increased the abundance of some, such as the earth mites and ground dwelling weevils and beetles... We found that crops planted post pasture had in general higher numbers of pests eg earth mites whereas cereals had the lowest number of earth mites present unless weeds were present within the crop... We found that the use of prophylactic sprays does not affect all pests...

Spilled grain could spell mouse troubles next year.. Supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), pest management authorities are advising growers, particularly those in high-yielding regions, to take steps to discourage a potential build-up of mouse populations... Mouse populations will be monitored in typical cropping systems in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland at three key times each year, coinciding with important crop stages and critical times in the build-up of mouse populations...

Five farming systems groups and SARDI are doing the GRDC funded research which is aimed at providing growers in south eastern Australia's low rainfall regions with break options to help rehabilitate problem paddocks... 31.009: Nigel Wilhelm: SARDI Farming Systems Group Leader 31.669: We have gone deliberately to paddocks where they have been in long-term cereal and where 36.149: the farmers have been concerned about these building constraints such as grassy weeds, 40.899: low fertility, so problem paddocks, which was the scenario we were looking at across 45.01: the whole region... 46.12: Narrator: Widely adopted during the millennium drought, 49.46: continuous cereal cropping was a grain growers best option during those tough years. Trouble 54.48: was grassy weeds not only took hold, they adapted to the farming system...
