Timing of pupation of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) in sugarcane fields.
Larvae of sugarcane soldier fly, Inopus rubriceps, pupated during autumn in sugarcane fields. Under conditions of moist soil and good cane growth, pupation occurred about 1 month later in northern and central Queensland ...
GrubPlan, a training program to help growers manage greyback canegrub (Dermolepida albohirtum) in Australia
The program, GrubPlan, used group extension methods with a high trainer:participant ratio of about 1:5. Workshops had an education component, as well as an interactive component in which participants mapped management ...
FI1045: A Profile of a Commercially Useful Isolate of Metarhizium anisopliae var. anisopliae
The isolate FI-1045 is the basis of a mycoinsecticide, BioCane TM granules recently registered for the control of greyback canegrub, Dermolepida albohirtum (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae) in Australian sugarcane ...
Distribution of larvae of Inopus rubriceps (Diptera: Stratiomyidae) around sugarcane plants
Larval populations of Inopus rubriceps (Macquart) in two sugarcane fields in southern Queensland, Australia, consisted of a mixture of small <7.5 mg) and large (>7.5 mg) larvae during 20 mo of observation.
Soil sampling for Metarhizium anisopliae spores in Queensland sugarcane fields
Three sugarcane fields in Bundaberg and four fields in each of the Burdekin, Tully and Innisfail (Queensland, Australia) were sampled for spores of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metchnikoff) (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes).
Recent evidence for resistance to soldier fly among sugarcane varieties
Two sets of trials looked at the interactions between soldier fly larvae development and sugarcane variety. The trials suggested there may be some varietal resistance mechanism that impedes larvae numbers and development.
Population dynamics of sugarcane soldier fly in the Mackay region
Populations of soldier fly, potential predators, other soil fauna and various abiotic factors were studied in eleven canefields and 2 grasslands during 1998–2001, corresponding to the plant crop to young third ratoon of ...
