SLUG MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP - 11 April 2014

Why Integrated Pest Management is needed

Entomologist Michael Nash will share his own experiences with slugs, along with advice and strategies for combating this growing problem, including how to calibrate bait spreaders for optimum results.

Michael Nash is a senior researcher with the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) and is currently working for GRDC on the integrated pest management of snails and slugs in grain crops.

"Slugs not only cause serious damage to establishing crops of canola, barley and poppies, but also pastures and vegetables."
