Description

The objective of the project is to equip cranberry producers with phytoprotection in order to ensure the sustainability of the organic sector, which is the pride of the province, but also to reduce the impact on human health and the environment of interventions. phytosanitary measures by optimizing monitoring and intervention periods for the major crop pest: the cranberry leafroller. This insect, whose damage can cause a reduction in yields of up to 95% of the annual harvest, represents the main threat to the sustainability of the organic sector.

Objective(s)

  • Optimize the insect's bioclimatic development model.
  • Create an interactive tool to model the impact of phytosanitary treatments on the dynamics of local populations and simulate future interventions in order to target optimal intervention periods.
  • Develop the use of automated traps for insect detection.
