Abstract

It Is economically and environmentally vital for growers and agronomists in the Australian grains industry to be able to manage endemic pests and diseases and recognise threats from ' high priority? pests. However, the extent to which they are able
to do this effectively was unknown. Therefore a training needs analysis was used to assess these skills. Most were able to
identify endemic pests but awareness of high priority threats was much lower than expected. The study also investigated
the effectiveness of different training styles and provision of Information. From these data, a theoretical framework has been
developed that could be used to structure training and information-provision to the industry.
