Be Part of the Pea Leaf Weevil Survey

-

Insect specialists at Alberta Agriculture and Forestry are seeking planted pea fields to survey north of Highway 1 and the Peace Region.

The team has begun its 2019 pea leaf weevil survey from the southern border of the province into the Peace Region and needs pea fields to survey. Team members do not enter the pea field to conduct the count. Instead, they kneel on the field edge and count the number of feeding notches on each node of 50 plants.
