Recommendations from the Canola Council of Canada to reduce damage by flea beetles (Phyllotetra spp.) include increased seeding rate, late seeding date, and larger seed size. However, there is no one study that simultaneously studies all three of these recommendations.
Evaluate the impact of seeding rate, seed size, and seeding date on flea beetle damage - specifically for the North Peace region.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project.
This project will support farmers agronomically in the North Peace region who may be impacted by flea beetles - along with the potential to lower the use of insecticides.
