New control options for Diamondback moth

New control options for Diamondback moth

Project Group: Vegetables NZ

Status: Upcoming

Timeline: TBC - TBC

Last Updated: 02/05/2023

This project aims to add a new biopesticide to vegetables crop protection programmes for the control of Diamondback moth (DBM). The introduction of this biopesticide will delay potential resistance to insecticides that are currently used in New Zealand.

The project also provides A Lighter Touch an opportunity to address a number of broader topics central to the programme’s aims, such as the regulatory pathway for biopesticides, integration of biopesticides into crop protection programmes and managing pesticide resistance risk. It is currently being developed as a full proposal for ISAG.
