Cutworm pests of crops on the Canadian Prairies : identification and management field guide.: A59-42/2017E-PDF

“This guide is intended to help producers identify and control oilseed and cereal crop cutworm pest species found on the Canadian Prairies. Included is general information on the biology and control of these pests followed by species-specific information. A list of registered cutworm chemical control products is not provided because available products frequently change. For this information, readers are instead directed to annual editions of provincial crop protection guides; links to updated online versions are listed in the Internet Resources section at the end of this guide. Also found in this guide are summaries of previous cutworm research, older control methods, and reasons why some control methods are no longer recommended. Information sources, many of which can be found online, are cited throughout the text. The historical context combined with current information helps identify knowledge gaps to direct future research. Keeping track of citations also simplifies updating the guide in the future”--Foreward, p. v.
