Survey of the summer/autumn Brassica refuges for diamondback moth in the Western Region to predict early season risk of infestation

Description

Diamondback moth (DBM) is a sporadic but serious pest of canola in Western Australian. The frequency and severity of DBM outbreaks have increased due to mild, dry winter conditions and the ability of the moth to rapidly develop insecticide resistance (Walden et al. 2010). More recently, RCSN members from Geraldton and Kwinana East port zone have indicated concerns of the DBM flight frequency and how few chemical control options are left due to resistance to multiple insecticide groups. Currently, monitoring crops for DBM occurs at the first sign of damage from mid-July through to late spring/early summer, leaving growers with little time to prepare a management strategy for yield-reducing populations. Dr Kym Perry, SARDI, has been working on identifying the regional movement patterns of DBM and sources of populations that seasonally colonise crops in South Australia. Preliminary results have shown that summer-active Brassicas (particularly Lincoln weed and sea rocket) provide an abundant local summer/autumn host, and these DBM were found to have identical insecticide resistance profiles to populations from canola in the same year. This indicates that DBM frequently move between wild Brassicas and canola, and the abundance of Brassicas and DBM in autumn was a reasonable predictor of early season pest pressure in subsequent canola crops. The benefits of expanding this work to Western Australia includes; • building on the SA datasets to feed into modelling DBM risk associated with local climatic conditions • identifying the local wild Brassica species in WA that provide a summer/autumn DBM refuge • quantify the current status of insecticide resistance of DBM in WA • provide real-time information to growers of the early season risk of DBM pressure The purpose of this investment is to increase knowledge of when DBM could be detrimental to canola prior to sowing, and giving WA growers time to implement integrated pest management options early.

Non-wetting management options for growers in the Albany port zone

Description

This investment is to improve the confidence in diagnostic methods for delineating and implementing methods to overcome non-wetting in most soil types and improve the of confidence of growers in the decision making for improving soil productivity. Growers want the ability to confidently maximise WUE on various previously repellent soils which will promote more even establishment of both crops and weeds which will lead to better yields and more effective weed control. Additionally, the Albany port zone RCSN members and growers are keen to explore alternative methods of amelioration excluding ripping and other deep soil measures, which they feel can cause more problems.
