Podcast for fall armyworm management in Northern farming systems (MT19013)

Key research provider: Cotton Research & Development Corporation

What's it all about?

An incredibly destructive exotic pest, fall armyworm was detected on Australian shores for the first time in 2020. This multi-industry and cross-sector project was established to support readiness and help protect the horticulture sector, through the delivery of an educational podcast series for growers.

The series is available from the Plant Biosecurity Research Initiative website and will come to include five episodes featuring interviews with international experts on their experiences with the pest; two episodes with Australian scientists on current advice and knowledge gaps; and four episodes with growers and advisors discussing regional topics and responses.

This project is a collaboration between Hort Innovation and other research and development corporations including the Cotton Research & Development Corporation, Grains Research & Development Corporation, Sugar Research Australia and AgriFutures Australia. It is being delivered through the Plant Biosecurity Research Initiative, which you can learn more about at
