Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
The majority of insect species present in these landscapes, especially pests, are good at moving between these habitats and seeking out the resources they need, such as food and shelter for all or part of the year... There is a strong interest in developing integrated pest management (iPm) on a large scale because pests are mobile... Pest suppressive landscapes will have the right mix of habitats that support beneficial insects and allow them to move into crop fields, but discourage the build-up of pests...

This project focuses on identifying the characteristics of pest suppressive landscapes and adopts a national approach... The approach allows us to develop guiding principles of IPM at the field, farm and landscape scale which work towards achieving reduced reliance on broad-spectrum insecticides and sustainable management of natural resources... This combined empirical and modelling approach allows us to provide guidelines on IPM at the field, farm and landscape scale...
