Aphids reduce yields by direct feeding damage which causes flower and pod abortion and occassionally plant death in lupins.
The extent of damage varies between seasons, but losses can be severe in years that favour aphid population development.
This management strategy provides an opportunity to control weed seed set in the pasture and during harvest.
Wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) is highly competitive in crops and can cause a yield loss of 10-90%.

The Focus Paddocks project assisted growers to make sound decisions to obtain a better return on their investment for break crops in their rotation.
