Description

The first purpose of the project is to identify pest information in the apple observer manual that is not covered in the IFP reference guide. The second purpose will be to update and incorporate this information into the guide so all the information is available in one complete, free document, available online and regularly updated.

Objective(s)

  • Consolidate all the information in the apple pest monitoring guide and the IFP reference guide for the benefit of apple growers and other industry stakeholders
  • Identify pest information in the apple pest monitoring guide that is not covered in the IFP reference guide
  • Update this information and include it in the IFP guide
  • Make this information on apple insect and mite pests available for free to growers and other industry stakeholders via the online integrated fruit production platform maintained by Réseau-pommier
