Monday, November 6

1:30 p.m. Stored Grain Insect Biology and Behavior Affects Fumigation Effectiveness

Insects that infest stored grains have various biological needs and their behaviors are not all the same. This presentation will focus on how the biology and behavior of stored grain insects affects the effectiveness of a fumigation treatment. Certain insects and their life stages require higher levels of phosphine to kill them than other insects. Therefore, it is critical to know what insect species you are trying to control to protect your crop.

Edmond Bonjour, Extension Entomologist for Stored Products and Director of the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Program, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater OK

(CCA CEU – Integrated Pest Management)

(ODAFF CEU – 7c Fumigation, 10 Demonstration & Research)

Development of Stored Product Insect Resistance to Phosphine

This presentation will discuss the importance of phosphine gas and the development of resistance to this fumigant in many stored product insects. I will also describe the many insect species that have developed resistance to phosphine, as well as the amounts of phosphine required to achieve control of 99% (LC99) of resistant insect populations.

Charles E. Konemann, Senior Agriculturalist, Dept. Entomology and Plant Pathology, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater OK

(CCA CEU – Integrated Pest Management)

(ODAFF CEU – 7c Fumigation, 10 Demonstration & Research)

Using Advances in Aeration to Improve Phosphine Effectiveness

Aeration is a powerful tool for preserving quality of stored grain. Proper design and management can also make fumigation and other IPM techniques more effective. This presentation will demonstrate the proper management and design of aeration for different structures and products. Particular attention will be given to new equipment for automatic management and how this equipment will benefit fumigators and phosphine application.

Carol Jones, Professor, Biosystems and Ag Engineering, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater OK
