This significant lettuce Integrated Pest Management project defined a crop monitoring protocol for lettuce growers, identified the key pests and diseases, developed management guidelines for all key pests, increased the number and improved efficacy of control methods available to lettuce growers and developed tools to aid growers in making pest management decisions. This included conducting ‘best management option’ trials to assess the potential of an Integrated Pest Management strategy using the best available options at the time of the trail as compared to current grower practices.
