|Following a crop with reduced hosting capacity for RLEM e.g. faba bean, narrow-leafed lupin and lentils.||Following a crop in which RLEM reproduction is low, or where RLEM have been controlled in prior to summer diapause e.g. chickpeas, winter cereal, albus lupins. Rapid emergence and establishment of seedlings.|

Key IPM considerations for field peas
- Tolerate early damage. Field peas can compensate for early damage by setting new buds and pods to replace those damaged by pests.
- Monitor native budworm infestations as mortality of small larvae can be high. Refer to records from successive checks to help interpret check data and make decisions about the need for, and timing of, control.
- Post treatment checks are critical to determine efficacy and possible reinfestation prior to harvest.
