Insecticide Resistance Management Strategies


Resistance management strategy for green peach aphid (GPA) in Australian grains

The aim of this strategy is to minimise the selection pressure for resistance in GPA. Regional differences in resistance levels across Australia mean that regionally relevant approaches are needed.

A large amount of research and industry knowledge lies behind the development of resistance management strategies. For in-depth information on the background to this strategy, see the science behind the GPA RMS (5.7 MB pdf)


Resistance management strategy for red legged earth mite (RLEM) in Australian grains and pastures

Due to local differences in resistance levels, there is a need to implement a resistance management strategy that is locally relevant. Specific strategies have been developed for the Western and Southern GRDC regions.


Resistance management strategy for diamondback moth (DBM) in Australian canola

The aim of this strategy is to minimise the selection pressure for resistance to the same chemical groups across consecutive generations of DBM. The strategy includes three insecticides – avermectins (Group 6, Affirm®), spinosyns (Group 5, Success Neo®) and the biopesticide Bacillus thuringiensis var. kurstaki (Btk) (Group 11A) – each of which provide efficacious field control.
