|Title:||Attract-and-kill for the diamondback moth, 'Plutella xylostella' in canola||Contributor(s):||del Socorro, Alice (author); Gregg, Peter (author) ; Binns, Matthew (author); Baker, Greg (author); Gulliver, Sophie (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17231||Abstract:||We have previously developed an attractant based on synthetic plant volatiles targeting the adults of the noctuid pests 'Helicoverpa' spp., and the product (Magnet®) has been registered for cotton, sweet com and green beans. With funding from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and AgBitech Pty Ltd, we investigated the feasibility of attract-and-kill as a novel approach to manage the diamondback moth, 'Plutella xylostella' (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) in canola. A small-scale field trial conducted on forage rape at Victor Harbor, SA in 2013, demonstrated that the attract-and-kill using Magnet® and the insecticide spinetoram (Success Neo®) worked for this species. It also showed that pheromone traps can be used to monitor DBM numbers in treated and control plots. Following this, we conducted a large-scale field trial involving aerial application of more than 600 ha of pre-flowering canola at Cummins, SA which showed a major reduction in DBM adult numbers in treated fields in comparison with the untreated and distant control fields.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||AES 2014: Annual Conference of the Australian Entomological Society - 'Celebrating the next 50 years of Australian Entomology', Canberra, Australia, 28th September - 1st October, 2014||Conference Details:||AES 2014: Annual Conference of the Australian Entomological Society - 'Celebrating the next 50 years of Australian Entomology', Canberra, Australia, 28th September - 1st October, 2014||Source of Publication:||Annual Conference of the Australian Entomological Society Abstracts, p. 26-26||Publisher:||Australian Entomological Society||Place of Publication:||Canberra, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070308 Crop and Pasture Protection (Pests, Diseases and Weeds)||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||820502 Canola||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 472
