Description

After reviewing the literature in international databases and consulting provincial experts on the topic, IRDA drew up a list of insects and mites in Québec known to be or likely to become resistant to pesticides. It also reviewed resistance monitoring methods and listed recommended techniques. The last stage of the project was to publish a leaflet for stakeholders upstream and downstream of the various horticultural sectors.

Objective(s)

  • Document insect and mite resistance to pesticides and methods of detecting it with a view to educating and guiding extension agents and producers regarding the risks of using inappropriate pesticides
  • Consult crop experts in Québec and provincial and international specialists in resistance monitoring
  • Conduct a scientific watch on pesticide resistance in insect and mite species in Québec
  • Produce a literature review and summary
