The funding, provided in part by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, is to support research associated with developing an early intervention strategy. The research is focused on understanding how spruce budworm outbreaks start so that tactics can be developed that will limit or possibly prevent a widespread severe spruce budworm outbreak from occurring. Only the province of Québec is currently engaged in a foliage protection spray program.
We’ve got a pretty extensive list of questions and answers about our partnership, the research program, treatments and outcomes. But if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the categories below, please ask your question. We want to make sure New Brunswickers have complete access to all information about this research project.
If you didn’t find what you were looking for, ask us your questions about spruce budworm and we’ll post the responses here, or let you know if the answer already exists.
