End of Season Resistance Monitoring + Conventional Insecticide Testing Report

The End of Season Resistance Monitoring Report, by Sharon Downes, and the Conventional Insecticide Testing Report, by Lisa Bird provide a summary of the outcomes of both programs during 2015-16.

The key outcome from both programs is that there has been no substantial change in frequency in Helicoverpa spp. in this year, as compared to recent years. It is imperative however to continue to practice good resistance management via adherence to the Resistance Managment Plan (RMP) for Bt cotton, and the Insect Resistance Management Strategy (IRMS).
