conical snail

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Mediterranean white and conical snails will serve as test subjects in a pilot study that may lead to the adoption of gene-silencing technology for crop pest-control applications... Dubbed "daughterless technology", the strategy involves constructing a molecular switch that can turn off female development, creating male-only populations... Existing controls have proved only partially successful and involve practices that are increasingly unacceptable to growers, because they either promote soil erosion (such as stubble burning) or cause chemical contamination (pesticides)...

Sprays are ineffective in controlling snails.. All bait formulations cause mortality to snails but none result in 100% mortality.. All baits used were non-rain fast...

We desperately need to break the life cycle of the snails.. In desperation we began to employ numerous ways to control snails but without ever being able to break their life cycle... The last two years have been very bad for snails on our farm, but because we have concentrated on controlling snails before seeding, we have not had to rely on the Inclined Belt to deliver our canola...

An integrated management strategy for white and conical snails in cereal, pulse and oilseed crops has been developed through this project and others supported by GRDC... Various grain cleaning alternatives were also assessed in other projects and their performance assessed and published in the manual... The releases of the fly conducted in the final few months of the project against the small pointed snail in the South East should also be assessed over the next two to three years to determine if it has established...

Grain contamination by round and conical snails poses a serious threat to grain exports... Strict grain quality standards for snail contamination are imposed at the silo... Controlling snail populations is vital if grain contamination and crop damage are to be prevented...

Reducing snail contamination a priority this harvest Grain growers in South Australia face a heightened risk of snails contaminating grain this harvest, resulting in potential downgrades and clogging of machinery... Options to reduce snail contamination are limited to minimising the intake of snails into the header, maximising the separation of snails and grain within the header, and post-harvest grain cleaning. ".. Sheet metal (punch-hole and expanded mesh) sieves are usually more effective than louvre sieves in removing snails but have a lower cleaning throughput harvest speed may need to be reduced to avoid overloading and grain losses...
