Control Of Grub Pests By Pasture Improvement [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner Wodonga Express and Riverina Stock Journal — 28 February 1941
Control Of Grub Pests By Pasture Improvement Top-dressing in the autumn ?with 1 cwt. superphosphate to the acrei is perhaps the most valuable measure to adopt for all species of pasture grubs. Al though this -will 'not destroy the grabs, it will enable the pastures ; to come away quickly after rain '. and will provide a dense covering ' rif firrass. in which COriditioa It will be less subject to infests tion than areas carrying poor stainds of grass. Whits curl grubs appear to have a decided preference for grasses in the pasture, and it has been found that these are usually eaten out before clovers are at tacked. The use of superphos phate encourages the growth of clovers and in this way assists in maintaining the carrying capac ity of the pastures, although the grasses may be affected.
