<p>“We’ve been working towards improving our farm’s natural habitat – in order to reduce pest pressure – for many years. As our vegetation grows, we’ve found we’re no longer reaching pest thresholds that previously would have indicated a need to spray.<br><br>However, while pest numbers have been reduced on our farm, most nearby farms are still reaching thresholds requiring sprays. Our approach shows that with optimal growth rates, a healthy population of beneficials and a plant monitoring approach, it’s possible to grow Bt cotton with a significantly reduced reliance on insecticide.” <!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><br><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><br><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] -->– Andrew Watson, cotton grower, "Kilmarnock"<!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><br><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --><br><!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] -->For more information, visit <a href="https://www.cottoninfo.com.au/insect-and-mite-management" target="_blank">www.cottoninfo.com.au/insect-and-mite-management</a>.<!-- [et_pb_line_break_holder] --></p>
