Australia funds stored grain pesticides

The Australian Grain Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is to sponsor the development of new products or technologies aimed at controlling pests in stored grain. It expects to invest up to Aus$200,000 (US$163,000) each year for up to four years. The GRDC welcomes collaborations from groups, particularly those including partners aiming to commercialise the outcome of any research. New products are necessary to reduce Australia’s reliance on the fumigant, phosphine. In most areas, phosphine is “the only inexpensive, approved pest control system commonly available”, the GRDC says. That is considered to be unsustainable because of the threat of resistance to the fumigant.
