Optimum canegrub management within new sustainable cropping systems : SRDC final report BSS266
MetadataShow full item record
This project addressed the issue of canegrub management in new farming systems. Many cane growers are adopting or planning to adopt one or more components of 'new farming systems' - legume rotations, reduced tillage and controlled traffic - to improve the profitability and sustainability of their farms. Canegrubs can be a constraint on cane productivity in conventional systems if not managed appropriately. Changes to farming systems could have positive or negative impacts on canegrub populations and the damage they cause, and may require changes to management tactics.
