Welcome to the fourth episode in our series providing exclusive coverage of the Plant Health Summit, a conference put on by Top Crop Manager at the end of February. In this series, you can expect to hear about topics such as plant growth regulators, fertilization, disease management and updates, and – in this episode – insect pest control.
In the fourth episode of our Plant Health Summit Series, Tyler Wist, a field crop entomologist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Saskatoon, and John Gavloski, an entomologist with Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development.
