Abstract

DAQ00086 targeted major Integrated Pest Management (IPM) gaps in summer pulses & provided IPM support in new & traditional production areas.

Project success was ensured by locating key trials on a research station with total control over pests, irrigation etc., complemented with on-farm trials where necessary.

Key achievements include new threshold models for mirids in mungbeans & soybeans & Helicoverpa in mungbeans. New pesticide options were found for soybean moth, soybean aphid & redbanded shield bug.

A new soybean/break-crop IPM course/manual was developed & the Accredited Mungbean Agronomist course's IPM module upgraded. Over 300 growers/consultants attended 16 IPM courses from Narrabri to the Burdekin.
