Content includes:

  • pesticide resistance
  • spray options for:
    • diseases
    • insects, mites and molluscs
    • herbicides
    • plant growth regulators
  • pest monitoring and treatment calendar.

The 2017/18 edition will continue to be updated throughout the season when applicable.

Other features include:

  • downloadable directly from the department’s website
  • searchable content
  • numerous links to additional information and external websites
