Crop Protection & Monitoring

CGCN Resources

The Canadian wine grape sector is a pioneer in the development and adaptation of novel ecological approaches to crop protection including biocontrol methods, habitat enhancement for pest predators, and early detection of pests and diseases allowing for early targeted controls and reduced pesticide use. A critical component of a successful sustainable pest management strategy is the ability to accurately recognize the onset of a pest or disease condition that needs intervention and reliably model and monitor the development of this pest. Activities 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 & 22 will explore crop protection strategies for healthier fruit and a reduction in the use of pest control products.
