For IRMS in cotton, refer to the latest Cotton Pest Management Guide, available from the CottonInfo website.
A 2019 guide on insect resistance in the Southern Region (current status, future risk and best management practices) is available on the GRDC website.
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)
The aim of the strategy is to minimise selection pressure for resistance in RLEM. As there are regional differences in resistance levels across Australia, the strategy includes chemical control plans for situations where RLEM have (1) resistance to synthetic pyrethroids and organophosphates; (2) resistance to synthetic pyrethroids only; (3) resistance to organophosphates only; and (4) no known resistance issues.

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.
The aim of this strategy is to minimise the selection pressure for resistance to the same chemical groups across consecutive generations of H. armigera. The strategy is primarily focussed on insecticide mode of actions in chickpea and mungbean systems, and is built around product windows for chlorantraniliprole (e.g. Altacor®) and indoxacarb (e.g. Steward®).
