HortCast Episode 3 with Craig White

Listen as Craig White talks to Jessica Page and Dr. Paul Horne of IPM Technologies & Carmen Brown, Territory Sales Manager for Bayer.

In this episode

Craig discusses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in vegetable crops with Jessica Page and Dr. Paul Horne of IPM Technologies, as well as on-ground practical application of IPM in the Lockyer Valley with Carmen Brown from Bayer.

IPM is important for crops, as it brings together the best possible tools including highly selective and targeted pesticides working together with beneficial species and cultural practices to overcome pest problems in brassica (and other crops) crops like diamondback moth (plutella).
 
Jessica Page talks about the newly formed Biological Research Company, new AUSVEG crop specific IPM guides and her involvement in IPM with Dr Paul Horne over many years. Dr Horne discusses the evolution of IPM, its role in ensuring growers have biological, chemical and cultural tools available to control pests sustainably in crops. One such example is Diadegma wasp, which is very successful in an IPM program along with Movento®, (Group 23) Belt®, (Group 28) and Bt (such as Dipel® (Group 11A)).


Carmen Brown from Bayer talks us through successful implementation of an IPM program to control diamondback moth in brassica crops.

IPM uses highly selective and targeted pesticides, that have low impact on beneficial species, along with cultural practices. IPM is crop specific approach, rather than pest specific.
