The apple leafcurling midge (ALM), Dasineura mali (Kieffer), is a new apple pest in Québec. Its impact on the growth and future yields of young apple trees is still little known. The aim of the project is to explore the pest’s phenology, establish variable economic injury thresholds, and incorporate the results into a phenology model in CIPRA.
