Brief description This proposal aims to strengthen insect pest control strategies and improve bio-insecticide use in agriculture though; - Understanding the mode of action of Bt-insecticides and improving their efficacy - Evaluating opportunities to develop bio-insecticides based on plant saponins - Determine the risk of insecticide resistant moths migrating to Australia, and within our borders Sustaining crop yield and maintaining food security is a significant worldwide concern. The outcomes of this proposal will provide; - opportunities to improve transgenic Bt-crops and Bt-sprays - commercial development of new bio-insecticides - develop optimal control strategies for major Australian migratory pests
