Lucerne Seed Wasp management

Lucerne seed wasp (LSW) is a major pest to lucerne seed producers which cannot be controlled through traditional pesticide applications. This project aimed to expand our understanding of the biology and life history of the LSW so lucerne seed producers can effectively manage this pest. The project also looked at the applicability of Northern-hemisphere control methods to Australian production systems. New control methods and identification techniques were considered.
