Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Industry relies heavily on insecticides to protect stored grain, but this is under threat from resistance... Subsequently an experiment was undertaken to determine the long-term efficacy of spinosad and residue levels during storage of treated wheat at 30 C. Spinosad efficacy was relatively stable during nine months' storage, with initial doses of 0.5 and 1 mg/kg giving 100% control of adults and progeny in all bioassays of wheat taken at intervals during storage... The results from this project and DAQ00009 reinforce how difficult it is to find protectants or protectant combinations to control all of the target species or resistant strains...
