Insect pest resistance to chemical controls is a growing problem even as the number of chemical control options decrease. More, and different control options are needed for farmers.
Evaluate the use of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) in a laboratory experiment against foliar insect pests including flea beetles, bertha armyworm, diamondback moth, lygus and cabbage root maggots.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project and final report submission.
These evaluations will direct future investigations under field trials with the long term goal of providing a sustainable insect pest management approach for Western Canadian farmers.
