Monitoring a crop is an integral part of a growers integrated pest management (IPM) strategy. Not only does it reveal if any damage is occurring, it also helps in determining pest and beneficial presence and abundance.

In this podcast, agronomist Phil Bowden explores these insect monitoring methods in detail, to help growers and advisors make an informed risk assessment and to decide if chemical control is warranted.

It’s also detailed in the publication Insect Pests Of Establishing Canola In NSW guide developed by cesar (developer of Pestfacts) and the GRDC.
