AgPest Alert – 15 July

Check pastures for Tasmanian grass grub damage

Region: Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay

In areas where Tasmanian grass grub can be a problem, damage may be seen. Check pastures particularly around stock camps and assess numbers to determine if insecticidal control is warranted. Bear in mind feeding is slowing and with spring growth approaching, control may only be warranted if it is required to preserve pasture plants.


Look for seedling broadleaved weeds

Region: All

Check established pastures for seedling broadleaved weeds such as nodding or winged thistle, ragwort or other troublesome weed and apply herbicide as necessary to the young weeds once clover growth has slowed.
