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.

Exclusion nets for organic apple production in Eastern Canada

The aim of this project was to test the general hypothesis that exclusion nets, when properly used, can prevent attacks by most apple pests and reduce disease incidence with no major adverse effects on fruit quality.

Adding organic matter and biostimulants to restore and maintain soil health and yields in a matted row strawberry field with a history of decline

The objective of this project was to determine whether the addition of two types of organic fertilizers or biostimulants would produce more vigorous plants less subject to decline.
