Mr Emery has over 35 years of service with the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) during which time he has acquired extensive knowledge and experience over the broad spectrum of economic entomology.
Mr Emery has led the Department of Agriculture stored grain insect research group who are world leaders in the management and eradication of resistant grain insects. Nowhere else in the world relies so heavily on fumigation for grain insect control through out the central handling system and on-farm and Mr Emery's research into resistance test methods, management of the national resistance monitoring and extension strategies have minimised and eradicated the development of strong resistance to phosphine.
These strategies have contributed to Western Australia being the only state capable of exporting its entire harvest without the use of contact insecticides.
