ECODA project number: Oilseeds East Activity 12


The overall objective is to develop integrated pest management strategies against flea beetle, pollen beetle and cabbage seedpod weevil (CSW) in Eastern Canada.
Specific objectives are to:

  • evaluate the influence of seeding date against flea beetles, CSW and pollen beetle.
  • evaluate the efficiency of chemical control against flea beetles.
  • determine the economic threshold for CSW.
  • determine the economic threshold and efficiency of insecticides for pollen beetle.

This research is underway, so the research project’s final report is not available yet.
