Concepts and value of the nitrogen guidelines contained in the Australian sugar industry's 'SIX EASY STEPS'nutrient management program.
The paper summarises the alternative N management strategies that occur within the Australian sugar industry. It describes best-practice nutrient management and the concepts that underpin the SIX EASY STEPS program, and ...
International activities to minimise industry losses from exotic pests and diseases.
The project incorporates specific surveys of PNG, northern Australia, Indonesia and Torres Strait/Cape York plus research on key pests and diseases in the region. This paper reports on the results obtained from three of ...
Pesticides under pressure—options for sustainable pest management.
Limitations of pesticides that have been observed in the sugar industry include resurgence of the target pest after pesticide application, development of secondary pests, environmental costs, pesticide resistance, enhanced ...
Attraction of adult Phyllotocus navicularis Blanchard and Eupoecila australasiae (Donovan) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) to volatile compounds
Japanese beetle traps baited with anethole attracted 20-36 times more adults of 'Phyllotocus navicularis' than did unbailed traps. In one of two tests eugenol and a Trece floral lure (10:22:11 2-phenylethylpropionatc: ...
Volatile compounds as attractants for Campsomeris tasmaniensis (Saussure) (Hymenoptera: Scoliidae)
Japanese-beetle traps baited with anethole attracted 17.9 times more adults of 'Campsomeris Tasmaniensis' than did unbaited traps. Phenol attracted 7.1 times, hexan-1-ol attracted 6.4 times, and eugenol, n-butyric acid, ...
Sugars, Amino Acids, and Ascorbic Acid as Phagostimulants for Larvae of Antitrogus parvulus and Lepidiota negatoria (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
Cellulose acetate filter disks were used to evaluate 14 sugars, 18 amino acids, and ascorbic acid as feeding stimulants for third instars of the sugarcane-infesting scarabaeids Antitrogus paruulus Britton and Lepidiota ...
Sexual dimorphism in the adult antennae of antitrogus parvulus britton and lepidiota negatoria blackburn (coleoptera: scarabaeidae: melolonthinae).
Antennae of both sexes of adults of Antitrogus parvulus and Lepidiota negatoria were examined using scanning electron microscopy following critical-point drying.
Do farming practices influence the incidence of Childers canegrub, Antitrogus parvulus Britton (Coleoptera:Scarabaeidae)?
The impact of farming practices on numbers of Childers canegrubs was determined in southern Queensland by a survey of 441 field–year combinations that related practices to the numbers of second- and third-instar larvae in ...
Transgenic sugarcane with increased resistance to canegrubs.
Transgenic sugarcane plants engineered to express either the potato proteinase inhibitor II or the snowdrop lectin gene show increased antibiosis to larvae of Antitrogus consanguineus in pot-based glasshouse trials.
