2018 Pest Management Research Report – call for submissions

Dear Researchers in Integrated Pest Management,

The Pest Management Centre compiles the Pest Management Research Report (PMRR) for the Canadian Phytopathological Society (CPS), in conjunction with the Entomological Society of Canada. The PMRR facilitates the exchange of information on Integrated Pest Management (IPM) among persons involved in research and advisory services on IPM of insect pests and plant diseases of importance to the agri-food industry in Canada.

The PMRR is published annually as a compilation of research reports by federal and provincial government, university and industry research and advisory personnel. These reports aid the development of recommendations for insect and disease management programs throughout Canada. They report on all aspects of pest management, including cultivar and management responses, and are available to support the registration of pest control products. The PMRR is published only in electronic format. The 1995-2017 editions of the PMRR are available on the CPS website for viewing and download at http://phytopath.ca/publication/pmrr/.

Please find the invitation to submit research reports for the 2018 edition of the PMRR. Also encourage any of your colleagues who conduct research into IPM to submit research reports.

Thanks,

Stefan Bussmann
