Event description
This session highlights the challenges of changing pest populations and examples of collaborative efforts to improve pest management.

About this event

This is the first session in a four-part Climate & Agriculture Initiative webinar series discussing major ways climate change is impacting BC farmers and ranchers and sharing resources and research enabling adaptation. From changing pests and pollinators to summer heat and drought, this series offers examples of adaptation in action.

Managing changing pest pressures

The seasonality, range and populations of agricultural pests are changing as average temperatures warm and seasonal conditions become more variable. These changes are increasing the risk of pest-related damage to agricultural production from insects, diseases, weeds and invasive species. This session will highlight the challenges associated with changing pest populations and share examples of collaborative efforts to improve sector resilience through regional monitoring and integrated pest management.

Presentations:

Regional agricultural pest monitoring in the BC Peace, Talon Gauthier, Peace Region Forage Seed Association and Keith Uloth, BC Peace Pest Monitoring

Increasing pest monitoring and IPM practices on Vancouver Island, Bonnie Zand, Bonnie's Bugs IPM
