Episode 8: Resistant Weeds and Colorado Potato Beetles

In this episode, we are joined by Kristen Obeid, Weed Specialist for horticulture crops to talk about the status of herbicide resistance in Ontario and a provincial resistance testing project that is underway. For more information on how to get your fields tested for free, contact Kristen at kristen.obeid@ontario.ca.

Continuing the pesticide resistance theme this week, we also hear from Dennis van Dyk, Vegetable Crop Specialist, about the Colorado potato beetle (CPB); an insect pest that is infamously known to have major resistance issues in potato and tomato crops. Suspect you have resistance populations of CPB on your farm? Contact Dennis at dennis.vandyk@ontario.ca.

Accessible format available upon request.
