Abstract/Contents:"Field trials over the summers of 1999/2000 and 2000/2001 has shown excellent efficacy on turf insect pests using a commercial EN product based on an Australian species of the genus Heterorhabditis. The EN technology has been developed by Dr. Robin Bedding of the Australian CSIRO, and uses a highly lethal nematode species that is bred to high numbers in a factory environment and then induced into a dormant state. This results in a cost-effective and practical product with an extended shelf life of several months. A number of patents are attached to this technology. Replicated trial work in the field on two important Australian turf insect pests demonstrated that Heterorhabditis rates of 200,000 nematodes per square metre gave excellent control of African Black Beetle (100% control) and Argentine Stem Weevil (90% control). Dr. Bedding is continuing his research to investigate similar breeding and storage of Predatory Nematodes, with potential efficacy on plant parasitic nematodes."
