PestFacts South Australia and Western Victoria co-ordinators say that cultural practices have a significant impact on insect populations in field crops and a number of basic steps over the summer and pre-sowing period can help increase the chances of a successful start next season... Summer weeds provide a 'green bridge' for pests such as aphids, mites, snails and diamondback moth to survive on over the hot summer months," said Mr Perry, whose work is supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation's (GRDC) investment in the National Invertebrate Pest.. Mr Perry recommends that growers identify paddocks at higher risk of pest pressure and carefully monitor them in the autumn prior to sowing susceptible crops...

The evaluation of slug management strategies - a "fast track project" instigated by the GRDC's Regional Cropping Solutions Network in the HRZ - has been conducted by Southern Farming Systems in the Western District of Victoria... SFS chief executive officer Jon Midwood said the project aimed to demonstrate and evaluate a range of management strategies that could effectively reduce slug damage to crops at emergence and during establishment... Mr Midwood said the project involved three trial and demonstration sites at Inverleigh, Hamilton and Skipton and that treatments included in the trials initially aimed to include a range of cultural practices and chemical options (baits), but with the very dry summer of 2012-13, some of the cultural controls became impractical...
