Fall Armyworm Continuity Plan for the Australian Grains Industry

Click here to view the resource

The Fall Armyworm Continuity Plan was developed for use by professionals, specialists and consultants to prepare localised and industry specific communication and extension material.

The plan focuses on the grain industry and provides:

  • background information on the current knowledge and status of fall armyworm (FAW; Spodoptera frugiperda) in Australia
  • key considerations in developing localised management strategies
  • future research and development for the Australian grain industry.

The purpose of the plan is to provide a reference point and a basis for industry to build upon when designing resistance management strategies, area wide management plans, crop-specific management manuals, and other extension materials such as audio and visual products for the management of FAW within Australian broadacre farming systems.
