Insect pest research to reduce costs for farmers

Insect pests are increasingly costing Australian dairy farmers time and money, but new research is now being conducted to minimise the problem.

To date, the challenge has been the variable nature across farms, regions, seasons, years and even the types of insect pests change from year to year. This in turn makes it extremely hard for farmers to determine the best approach, making it a costly exercise to sort out. 

The research, supported by Dairy Australia, will work to pinpoint the insects damaging dairy pastures and lead to more accurate methods to combat the pests. To ensure the research is as detailed as possible to find the best cost-saving measures, dairy farmers across Australia are encouraged to complete a short, online survey. The survey is now available and can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AUinsects
