Pesticide resistance is something most growers have run into at some time or another. High pesticide resistance in species like western flower thrips and Bemisia whitefly is something we’ve learned to work around. But how can we avoid resistance in pest species where we still rely on pesticides? For pests like spider mites and powdery mildew, this is an ongoing battle.
Three OMAFRA specialists are hosting a series on pesticide resistance that will include question and answer periods after each session. Contributors are Hannah Fraser (Entomologist), Dr. Katie Goldenhar (Plant Pathologist) and Kristen Obeid (Weed Management). Read on for dates and how to register.
