  • An Integrated approach of breeding and Germplasm enhancement and pathology for value added production of flax in canada for food and industrial utilization (MII)
  • Development and implementation of monitoring technologies to determine incidence and severity of biotic stresses associated with existing and emerging crop production issues
  • Determination of biotypes-pests and diseases of oilseed crops (i.e., virulence phenotypes, pesticide resistance) in pest populations.
  • Characterization of yield and quality (including food safety) losses caused by biotic stresses - (field crops other than cereal) pathology, entomology and weeds
  • Identify and quantify the environmental, biological and cultural factors that influence pest status.
  • Assess the ability of crop varieties to cope with biotic agents and determine the risks to crop production.
  • Study the epidemiology and genetics in wild sunflower species to sclerotinia infections (stem and head rot)
  • Development of technologies and practices to manage biotic risks to crop production systems, including low input and organic production systems
