New smart technology is available to assist broadacre grain growers with in-paddock snail and slug pest control.
Smartphones are being trialled by Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development researchers to more effectively track and combat crop pests.
This page summarises the main factors to consider when planning or managing a canola crop.
Calibrate your bait spreaders estimate baits per square metre with a single photo.
Aphids reduce yields by direct feeding damage which causes flower and pod abortion and occasionally plant death in lupins.
Grain growers monitoring crops for signs of pests, diseases, frost and other production constraints are advised the popular MyCrop crop diagnostic tool has been updated.
Green peach aphid feeding damage to flowering canola did not cause yield loss
Canola seed oil content also was not correlated to population density of green peach aphids
This trial investigated if feeding damage caused by cabbage aphid causes yield loss in canola. The trial was established to re-investigate management guidelines for aphid colonies in canola.
The extent of damage varies between seasons, but losses can be severe in years that favour aphid population development.
Heavy infestation of aphids caused significant yield loss to canola in a high rainfall environment
