Mr McMaster says growers should practice good broadleaf weed control in and around crop areas as SLW has a very wide host range and can rapidly develop resistance to insecticides. ".. Queensland Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries (QDPI&F) entomologists have visited the area and also report cotton fields around St George are at or reaching high densities of SLW. QDPI&F graduate entomologist Zara Ludgate says the whitefly present in the.. Greenhouse whitefly (GHW) and East Australian native whitefly have been common in the past but are easy to control compared with SLW. "It is thought that increased host plant availability from a wet winter/spring, warm conditions and a decline in natural enemies due to the use of broad spectrum insecticides has contributed to the high SLW numbers," Ms Ludgate said...

DAQ00131 project activities aimed to: conserve tropical grains germplasm under long-term storage conditions; acquire new germplasm with unique traits of interest to clients (particularly to breeding programs); the maintenance of germplasm through viability testing and regeneration; and to increase awareness of the availability of tropical grains germplasm to clients... New project goals were to facilitate the creation of the national grains Genetic Resources Centre (GRC) and included training GRC staff in the use of GRIN-Global (GG), a software management system, so that grains data can be nationalised across Australia; and contribute to the action plan development for the relocation of tropical grains germplasm to both Tamworth and Horsham... The significant consultation and communication that the Biloela GRC staff undertook during the project have secured the conservation of two globally unique germplasm sets within the next project period...
