As plant diseases evolve, so are ways of tackling them through plant science. Join us as we delve into the world of diseases and pests that pose a threat to Canada’s agricultural landscape, and new ways scientists are fighting back against them. 
In this session, we will explore:
  • The Latest Findings: Discover recent research on pathogens and pests like soybean cyst nematode (SCN), wheat midge and root rot in pulses.
  • How Researchers are Finding Solutions: Learn about cutting-edge techniques for tackling these threats.
Who Should Attend:
  • Farmers and agronomists seeking to protect their crops and livelihoods.
  • Researchers and students interested in entomology, plant pathology and breeding.
  • Government officials and policymakers responsible for agricultural health and safety.
  • Environmental advocates looking to understand the intersection of agriculture and ecosystem health.
