Efficacy of BioCaneTM against southern one-year canegrub was demonstrated in field trials for at least 2 years after application to soil at 5 g/m of cane row, the application rate currently registered for its use against ...
Acoustic characteristics of dynastid beetle stridulations
Oryctes rhinoceros (L.) (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Dynastinae) causes economically important damage to ornamental and commercial coconut palm trees in the western Pacific region that could be mitigated significantly by ...
Quantifying spatial movement of the greyback cane beetle in the sugarcane landscape: data available and research needs.
This paper presents data and information currently available on the ecology of the greyback beetle and proposes several research actions and new technologies to further study the flight pattern of this beetle on a landscape scale.
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 ...

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 ...
Movement of larvae of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) into rows of sugarcane
Larvae of sugarcane soldier fly, Inopus rubriceps, began aggregating near sugarcane plants in troughs within 1 week of planting. By 6 weeks, almost 80% of larvae were found within 13 cm of the plants and only 5% were found ...

The liquid soil fumigant Vapam (metam-sodium) was investigated for control of pink ground pearl, Eumargarodes laingi, in sugarcane.
Evaluation of an application procedure for Metarhizium anisopliae in sugarcane ratoons for control of the whitegrub Dermolepida albohirtum
Options for management of D. albohirtum would be broadened if M. anisopliae could also be effectively applied in ratoon crops. We evaluated the efficacy of spores of M. anisopliae sprayed as an aqueous suspension into two ...
Field trials of Metarhizium anisopliae (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes) against Inopus rubriceps (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) in sugarcane.
Two isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin were tested against the sugarcane pest Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) in separate field trials. Conidia were mixed with attapulgite and applied to soil at two rates ...
