Pests and Benefcials in Australian Cotton Landscapes
his guide takes us to a new era in that it introduces the role that native vegetation can playin Integrated Pest Management (IPM). It outlines some simple management principles thatwe can use to make areas o native vegetation more eective as habitats or benefcials. Forinstance, putting bat houses in some trees will encourage bats that consume a considerableamount o insect pests.This guide also provides photos and inormation so that you can identiy the pests andbenefcials in the crop and the natural environment. Good IPM starts with being able to correctlyidentiy what’s in your crop.On our arm we have ound that our increased understanding o benefcials has decreased theneed to spray. We looked at ways to manage and promote those non-crop area’s o our property.Drawing on industry research o benefcials and their behaviour and whole arm managementlearned rom a grazing or proft program, we studied arm layout and the distance rom cottonto tree corridors and vegetation, and how this related to spraying in cotton. We have ound romfrst hand experience that looking and measuring numbers o pests and benefcials across ourcotton and natural areas helps in making better IPM decisions.I welcome this new resource in its ormat as a handy ute guide or the Australian cotton industryand commend it or your use.
