Flea beetles don’t seem to be going anywhere. The weather conditions experienced in 2021 favored flea beetle feeding and poor canola germination and growth. How can we get this small seed up and out of the ground, past the susceptible flea beetle feeding window in 2022? The panelists will highlight best management practices to keep flea beetles at bay, with a deep dive into seed treatment options, and how these products function under different scenarios.
