New field guide for Prairie pests in Western Canada

Agriculture Canada has a new 152-page full-colour illustrated field guide for managing more than 90 crop and forage pests in Western Canada.

Along with diagnostic information for pest species, the guide also helps to identify over 30 natural enemies that prey on or parasitize these pests. The book includes identification characteristics, life cycle, damage or benefits, monitoring and scouting techniques, economic thresholds, and control or conservation options.
