This Guide provides you with a comprehensive summary of the key cotton crop protection issues, and is brought to you by the Australian cotton industry’s joint extension program, CottonInfo. CottonInfo is an initiative of the Cotton Research and Development Corporation, Cotton Australia and Cotton Seed Distributors Ltd, designed to bring you best practice information, when and where you need it. A major focus of this year’s Cotton Pest Management Guide is the inclusion of the first Herbicide… 
Can resistance management strategies recover insecticide susceptibility in pests?: a case study with cotton aphid Aphis gossypii (Aphididae: Hemiptera) in Australian cotton
TLDR
The integrated strategy has now almost completely recovered susceptibility to IPM friendly pirimicarb and resistance to neonicotinoid insecticides has declined dramatically.
RESISTANCE MONITORING IN AUSTRALIAN FRANKLINIELLA OCCIDENTALIS: ESTABLISHMENT OF A PHORATE BASELINE, DETECTION OF THIAMETHOXAM RESISTANCE, AND A NEW MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR USE IN PROCESSING TOMATOES
Processing tomato growers in Australia recently reported difficulty controlling western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), using registered insecticides. Consequently, this study
A TaqMan qPCR method for detecting kdr resistance in Aphis gossypii demonstrates improved sensitivity compared to conventional PCR–RFLP
TLDR
It is demonstrated proof of concept that pooled insect qPCR methodology provided effective detection with better sensitivity than individual PCR–RFLP genotyping techniques for the kdr resistance allele.
Impacts of Pesticides on Honey Bees
TLDR
The routes of exposure of bees to agrochemicals used for crop protection and their application to crops, fate and contami‐ nation of water and plants around the fields are examined.
