A scoping study of current barriers to integrated pest management options for the management of key vegetable sucking pests. This results from increade IPM adoptions within the industry assisted by product rotations, development of new, selective, soft-option products that are effective in controlling leidopterous pest species, and greater use of scouting techniques to assess insect pressure. Greater IPM adoption is being hindered but lack of specific soft option products to control suckings pests across a range of vegetable crops, and lack of farm friendly techniques to monitor or predict suck pest populations.
