Webworm a huge threat to pasture They've weathered a drought and battled through last week's cyclone, now nature is throwing pestilence at Far North farmers in the form of a pasture- devouring caterpillar. Near-tropical con- ditions on the Aupouri Peninsula in have been very favourable for webworm caterpillars, which feed on kikuyu and can cause wide- spread damage. Entomologist Jenny Dymock, who monitors tropical grass web- worm numbers for the Northland Regional Council, says heavy rainfall in the last two weeks has resulted in sodden pastures which have then baked in humid, hot weather. Basically, these sorts of conditions are ideal for the webworm, which is a tropical insect, Dr Dymock says. Fresh new growth of kikuyu is also provid- ing a feast for web- worm larvae which can build-up in numbers very fast.'' Cable Bay-based Dr Dymock has already observed patches of chewed pasture around Motutangi and caterpillars from the first February cycle of webworm are already forming cocoons -- a couple of weeks earlier than usual. Moths that hatch from these cocoons will lay eggs and, if the cur- rent climate of warm, humid weather con- tinues, large numbers of caterpillars will be munching into kikuyu by the end of February and into March.'' However, farmers can help to break the cycle by harrowing pas- ture where possible. Dr Dymock says farmers may also need to plan to secure alternative feed for stock if necessary. Tropical grass web- worm is a pest found in Australia, Asia and some Pacific countries and in high enough densities can literally chew out several hectares of pasture in less than 48 hours. It is typically found in sunny, north-facing areas and forest margins on sand country of the Aupouri Peninsula. Although the adult moth does not feed, each webworm moth can lay well over 100 eggs which hatch into caterpillars that do the pasture damage. The webworm prefers kikuyu but will eat other grasses, bamboo and some weeds. The adult webworm is a drab, fawn- coloured moth, about 2.5cm across, some- times with dark spots scattered over its delta shaped wings. Caterpillars are 5-10mm long and very active when disturbed. They are translucent and range from pale green to dark brown depending on what they are feeding on.

Restructuring proposed for Waitangi board The governance struc- ture of the Waitangi National Trust Board will be modernised to reflect the cultural and historical importance of the Treaty Grounds at Waitangi according to Arts, Culture and Heri- tage Minister Christo- pher Finlayson and Wai- tangi National Trust Board Chair Pita Paraone. The board was set up in 1932 by Lord and Lady Bledisloe, when they gifted to the people of New Zealand the 506 hectare Waitangi estate which includes the Treaty Grounds. Lord Bledisloe was governor- general at the time. The board includes representatives of the families of some of our most significant histori- cal figures such as Hone Heke, Maihi Kawiti, Tamati Waka Nene, Pomare, James Busby, Archdeacon Henry Wil- liams, and Edward Gib- bon Wakefield. In recognition of the national significance of the treaty, the grounds and the trust board, the governor-general will become the honorary patron, and it is proposed that having two members of Parliament on the board would help it to maintain strong links with the elected representatives of New Zealanders. A Crown representa- tives group will also be established comprising the prime minister, the minister for arts, culture and heritage and the minister of Maori affairs. The Crown represen- tatives will not be formal members of the trust. In 1932, the Bledisloes also vested the 550 hec- tare Waitangi Endow- ment Forest in the Crown, which holds it in trust on behalf of the nation. The Bledisloes intended that commer- cial forestry would pro- vide the trust board with an income. The Crown will investigate with the board whether this intent would be better met by transferring own- ership of the forest land to the board, and will discuss this proposal with local Maori groups. Trust board chairman Pita Paraone says the board fully supports the changes. The trust is self funded and main- tains this national icon without cost to the people of New Zealand. The changes have the potential to strengthen the financial viability and governance struc- ture which will enable us to increasingly place Waitangi, its history and significance, at the heart of being a New Zea- lander and as an essen- tial experience for over- seas visitors.''
