On May 8, the “Meeting of the Vegetable Growers” took place through the Secretariat of Agriculture, Agribusiness, Labor and Development and Municipality of Itapetininga. The meeting brought together farmers from the region and area technicians to discuss issues related to the control of pests of agricultural importance for cucumber, peppers and tomatoes – mainly addressing […]
The IRAC Executive approved the MoA classification of Tetraniliprole as a new anthranilic diamide in Group 28 (Ryanodine receptor modulator). The IRAC MoA Classification Scheme will be updated accordingly.
IRAC España ha emitido una alerta de aviso de resistencia de Cydia pomonella a diversos modos de acción en frutales de pepita. En los últimos años se están produciendo numerosos casos de problemas de control de Carpocapsa (Cydia pomonella) en el valle del Ebro. Además, se ha detectado un incremento de las poblaciones tanto de esta […]
On April 4, 2019, IRAC-BR and the Copacol cooperative (Cafelândia-PR) organized the I WORKSHOP ON INSET RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT (MRI) to discuss the validation of regional MRI recommendations. The event brought together experts on insect resistance and the staff of Copacol. Initially the process of evolution of insect resistance to insecticides and Bt plants and […]
The Ontario Pest Management Conference (OPMC) Steering Committee commissioned this White Paper as a call to action, to stimulate focused dialogue and set in motion a compelling strategy to proactively engage Canadian agriculture stakeholders in pesticide resistance management (RM). Its intention is to set out a coherent approach to align Canadian agriculture stakeholders in RM engagement. It […]
The IRAC Mode of Action Working Group have developed a set of 74 slides as a MoA tutorial outlining the major mechanisms of insecticide resistance and, explaining with graphics, MoA by the targeted physiology affected using the broad categories of: Nerve and Muscle, Growth and Development, Respiration, Midgut and Unknown or Non-specific target sites or […]
A first full audio meeting of the new IRAC Europe group was held on 20th March 2019 and the objectives for the coming 2019/20 year were established.
IRAC España ha emitido una Alerta sobre resistencias de Tuta absoluta a diamidas (MoA 28) en tomate.

In a situation in which running real-world experiments is impractical (or even impossible), computer simulations offer a powerful solution to understand complex problems. This is exactly the case of resistance-evolution prediction: Although fast from an evolutionary perspective, the time and spatial scales involved in this process are simply too large to be dealt with experimentally.
