The Canola Research Hub recently highlighted three research studies that investigated nematodes, parasitoids and other insect pest predators that impact cutworms in canola. These biocontrol organisms may be currently providing pest management assistance or could provide optional biocontrol in the coming years.
Recent research projects give us an update on the state of herbicide-resistant weeds on the Prairies, and provide tips for effective prevention and management. Outside agronomic expertise may help with a practical integrated weed management plan.
