Researchers at Canada’s Vineland Research and Innovation Centre have discovered a new general predator to help control pests associated with increased crop diversity in Canadian greenhouses. The discovery comes thanks to a five-year project funded in part by the Government of Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership’s AgriScience Program, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative in collaboration with the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and the biocontrol producer Applied Bio-nomics Ltd.
