A new Queensland Department of Agriculture, Forestries and Fisheries (DAFF) guide to beneficial and pest insects in pulse crops is now available in hard copy and online at www.thebeatsheet.com.au.
The publication allows growers and advisers access to the expertise of Hugh Brier, DAFF senior entomologist (pulse specialist) and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has supported its production.
Good Bug, Bad Bug is tipped to be an invaluable guide for pulse producers in Queensland and NSW.
It features more than 300 glossy photos of insects found in pulse crops to help growers and advisers confidently identify pest and beneficial insects in their crops.
Mr Brier says the publication brings details of all pulse pests and beneficial insects into one book for the first time and the 44-page guide is designed to be taken into the field.
For more information contact Mr Brier on 07 4160 0740 or email@example.com or Kate Charleston, DAFF senior extension officer on 07 4688 1314 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
