Description

IRDA was tasked with coordinating and increasing the use of mating disruption to control codling moths on at least 35% of Québec’s apple farms and 40% of its apple-growing production acreage.

Objective(s)

  • Ensure that at least 35% of Québec apple farms use mating disruption to control the codling moth
  • Ensure that mating disruption is used to control the codling moth on at least 40% of Québec’s apple acreage

From 2018 to 2020
