Parthenium: Parthenium hysterophorus
Par thenium is a vigorous species that colonises weak
pastures with sparse ground cover. It will readily colonise
disturbed, bare areas along roadsides and heavily stocked
areas around yards and watering points. Par thenium can
also colonise brigalow, gidgee and sof twood scrub soils.
Its presence reduces the reliability of improved pasture
establishment and reduces pasture production potential.
Par thenium is also a health problem as contact...

‘Best Bet’ IPM strategy Summer pulse pests Pre‐plant
Avoid paddocks in close proximity to other pest hosts (e.g. thrips moving from parthenium that transmit tobacco streak virus to mungbeans, or silverleaf whitefly
moving from cucurbit and cotton crops into soybeans).
Avoid paddocks previously planted to crops hosting soil‐borne pests such as cutworms or nematodes,
and observe recommended plant back periods.
Avoid sequential ...
‘Best Bet’ IPM strategy Sunflower pests – Northern region Pre‐season and sowing
Monitor prior to sowing for establishment pests:use germinating seed baits and/or soil sampling. Increased risk of establishment pests and seedling loss: history of establishment pests high levels of retained stubble or weedy fallow seedling emergence is slowed by cool, wet or dry conditions. Control broadleaf weeds in‐field and around crop margins to...
