The model’s predictions will be used to calibrate the dose of a thinning agent (ANA) to be applied in two plots, one treated with carbaryl and the other without, over a two-year period. The agent will be tested under Québec’s climatic conditions to ensure that the technology can be transferred to growers.
From 2019 to 2020

Researcher: Daniel Cormier
The purpose of this project is to test the general hypothesis that biobased polymers can be used to replace fossil-fuel-based products and reduce the use of pesticides without increasing GHG emissions.
This online training platform will help improve technical support for Québec apple growers by furthering the training of new consultants.
