|Title:||A Growers Perspective on Insect Control|
|Publisher:||Australian Cotton Growers Research Association|
|Abstract:||Good average irrigated yields have been achieved on the Darling Downs by most growers this season while dryland crops on average did not fare so well due to the unseasonal hot dry conditions. The region had to contend with high heliothis pressure i.e. more than 15 eggs per metre for much of the season, and this coupled with high levels of resistance (starting with 80% H. armigera in mid-November) has made control costs very high, with some yield forgone at the same time from insect damage. This combination of high pressure and high levels of resistance from early season onward makes for a very difficult outlook.|
