Spotlight Magazine - Winter 2015

The winter edition of CRDC's new-look magazine, Spotlight, looks at how an integrated approach to farming provides benefits at both a farm and industry level. The articles covering post-harvest crop management, insect, weed, and disease management have a shared message – integration is key to the best control.

In this issue, hear from industry specialists who have identified 10 reasons to keep in front of mind when carrying out post-harvest crop destruction; learn more about the industry's move to manage new threats, like reniform nematodes in Central Queensland; take a look at sowthistle, to understand the biology of this weed and its resistance to glyphosate; and investigate the detection of a new strain of verticillium wilt.
