This project was aimed at evaluating the impact of integrated pest management (IPM) on the profitability of field crop farms. The appropriate quantitative methods was used to analyze data from Québec’s agricultural advisory groups (Groupes conseils agricoles). Project findings were used to measure how much IPM contributes to the profitability of farms producing field crops.
