Crop protection products have different modes of action that can affect both insect pests and beneficial species differently.

It’s important to understand the risk profile of these modes of action, and how it influences resistance management as well as informing the implementation of integrated pest management (IPM) practices.

You can also refer to a series of guides for vegetable growers and agronomists which explain the best ways to use pesticides in an IPM program to maximise the impact of beneficial species.

IPM Technologies led the development of the guides which cover crops including brassicas; cucurbits and fruiting vegetables; leafy vegetables and head lettuce; legume vegetables; root and tuber; stalk and stem vegetables; and sweet corn.
