The many treatments required to control insects and diseases in berry crops can limit the use of integrated pest management (IPM). The aim of this project was to produce a poster with information to help producers and extension agents choose pest and disease control strategies that promote the use of IPM.
From 2016 to 2017

IRDA drew up a list of insects and mites in Québec known to be or likely to become resistant to pesticides.
As part of this project, the soil water status at a chosen blueberry farm will be monitored at 40 spots over the course of the production year. We will seek to identify the relationship between water extraction, physicochemical and environmental factors, and yield levels that could help explain yield variability.
