Critical knowledge gaps for pests and beneficials in Australian grain production systems
We are currently limited in our ability to predict when and where invertebrate pest densities will reach high levels and cause yield loss in grain crops across Australia. This is partly due to a lack of fundamental knowledge around pest and beneficial species distribution and the factors that influence population abundance. This collection will gen... moreerate new knowledge about the life-cycle and biology of a range of pest and beneficial species across southern and western regions, which will enable pathways for better insecticide-use decision-making and the proactive management of pests. less

GRDC: CSE00059 New knoweldge to improve
A gap analysis conducted to highlight what is known (and not known) of the life-cycle and biology, and impact of pest and beneficial species we think may be important in southern grain production regions (i.e. they either have the potential to cause damage to grain crops, or the potential to attack pest species). We would like to include species ma... morey be considered an infrequent pest in current grain production systems, but there may be an indication that their status may change in the future less
A gap analysis through a systematic literature review approach was conducted to highlight what is known (and not known) of the life-cycle and biology, and impact of pest and beneficial species that may be important in southern and western grain production regions.
