About CropLife Australia's Resistance Management Strategies

CropLife Australia promotes the responsible use of a range of pest management methods to ensure sustainable agricultural outcomes.  Its members are committed to the pursuit of technologies that provide economically viable solutions to pest control. Crop protection products are an important tool in an integrated approach to pest management. 

It is recognised that resistance management is a vital aspect of maintaining the crop protection option for integrated crop management.  In line with good farming practice, a comprehensive program of alternative management strategies is employed to minimise the development of resistance, whilst contributing towards the quality of the environment.

The below video from CropLife International and the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) explains insecticide resistance management by rotation of different modes of action.
