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.

This project aims to improve our understanding of the evolution and spatial variability of soil health indicators as barometers of climate change.
The aim of the project is to assess the impact of applying various rates of glyphosate in field crop systems on the soil and crop rhizosphere microbiome.
