“Resistance issues in Canada are serious. Plans to reduce the risk of resistance should be part of every farmer and agronomists’ crop and pest management planning.”
– John Gavloski, Extension Entomologist, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development

“Pest resistance decreases yield and can significantly impact crop quality. To manage resistance, I recommend using multiple tactics and rotate through them, including crop rotation, planting date adjustments, tillage, genetics/transgenics, biocontrol and chemical controls to keep populations from figuring out a way to avoid or become tolerant to them.”
– Tracey Baute, Field Crops Entomologist, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs

“Good crop rotation, combined with good product rotation, can reduce the risk of resistance becoming a problem.”
– John Gavloski, Extension Entomologist, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development
