AbstractCanegrub damage resulting from a variety of scarab species is a major productivity constraint for about 50% of Australian sugarcane farmers. Affected growers are spread across all cane growing districts and across all farming systems. Effective insecticides are the major tools used by growers to limit damage, with significant benefit for both growers and millers. Sugar Research Australia have had a formal collaboration with Crop Care Australia since 1992 that has sought to develop controlled release insecticides that by their nature, when applied at planting, provide protection to sugarcane crops for a number of years. This long term collaboration has resulted in the registration of a number of controlled release products based on the active ingredients chlorpyrifos and imidacloprid, the most recent of which is marketed under the trade name suSCon maxi Intel.
