Research impact - an end-user’s perspective: Development of a female Q-fly lure

4/26/2018
More
From the 2016 Plant Biosecurity CRC Science Exchange: New controls are urgently needed to manage Queensland fruit fly (Q-fly) as the long-used cover-sprays for fruit fly control are being withdrawn for regulatory reasons. Q-fly is the most serious insect pest of summer fruits, crops which have a combined value of approximately $260 million per annum. Effective lures/ traps for mature, egg-laying female flies are especially needed as currently available controls which target the egg-laying...

Research impact – the past and the future: Managing myrtle rust in Australia

5/15/2017
More
From the 2016 Plant Biosecurity CRC Science Exchange: Invasive pests and pathogens can have devastating and unpredicted impacts on native ecosystems. The threat that Puccinia psidii (myrtle/eucalyptus/guava rust) posed to Australian industries was well recognised, but until its introduction in 2010, there was scant consideration of the impacts this disease may have on endemic Myrtaceous plant species and associated communities in native environments. Since its detection in Australia, the...

Research impact – an end-user’s perspective: Phosphine resistance

5/10/2017
More
From the 2016 Plant Biosecurity CRC Science Exchange: Around the world, grain industries are looking for solutions to the increasing problem of insect resistance to the key fumigant phosphine, a fumigant that underpins the Australian exports of grains. PBCRC has developed and implemented a national phosphine resistance management program that involves: implementation of new and effective national treatment protocols; communication of resistance trends to industry based on substantial...
