Please join us online for an update on managing Fall armyworm (FAW) on northern Australian dairy farms.
FAW is a key pest in Australian cropping and dependent industries such as dairy. FAW is reported to feed on over 350 host plants and can cause significant damage to maize, sorghum and C4 pastures.
This webinar will focus on several key aspects as they relate to tropical and subtropical dairy farms:
- Potential damage and the latest control measures for corn and sorghum forage crops
- What needs to be considered when choosing a forage crop this summer?
- Formulating milking herd diets based on sorghum forages
