This project is being carried out by the grain research center CÉROM, and IRDA is in charge of conducting the economic analysis.
CÉROM’s initial two-year project is aimed at evaluating whether flower strips around soybean fields serve as a reservoir for aphid species attacked by Pandora neoaphidis.
From 2017 to 2019
Pest, weed, and disease control
IRDA's economic analyses help growers evaluate the cost-effectiveness of alternative pest control methods, among other things.
