This new, 152-page, full-colour field guide, now available online, is designed to help you make informed decisions in managing over 90 harmful pests of field and forage crops in Western Canada.

Recognizing and fostering populations of natural enemies will enhance their role in keeping or reducing pest populations below economic levels.
