Are insects chuffed with chaff?
Host: Chris Brown | Date: 27 Nov 2019
Entomologists, with the help of growers and grower groups, are looking at whether chaff lines and other harvest weed seed control are having an impact on invertebrate populations in a paddock.
Survey work is underway to find out if insect behaviour and movement are affected by extra chaff left in the paddock after harvest.
On this podcast, DPIRD entomologist, Svetlana Micic takes us into the paddock to explain what she thinks may be happening.
