About

Caroline Côté (agr., Ph.D.) is an agronomist with a master's degree in soils from Université Laval. She completed a doctorate at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Université de Montréal on the biological risks associated with the use of farm manure on market garden crops. She then became interested in the impact of agricultural practices (irrigation, organic manure applications) on the presence of potential human pathogens on crops and in agricultural environments. After a few years working as a research project manager for various organizations, she joined IRDA in 2001. She believes that teamwork and a multidisciplinary approach help build strong ties among agricultural stakeholders.
