Why We Need More Organic Producers? Tackling the Environmental Challenges of Rising Pesticide Use in Canada

Presenter: Christy Morrissey

11:15 am - 12:00 pm

Session


The disciplines of agriculture and environment have often been seen as at odds with one another. Producers are faced with a  perceived choice to trade-off environmental damage in order to produce more food to feed a growing global human population.  In this seminar, Dr. Morrissey will demonstrate that this paradoxical thinking has resulted in trends toward large scale landscape simplification, increasing pesticide and fertilizer reliance, with negative consequences to biodiversity, water quality and soil health.  In order to tackle these challenges, we need to harness the knowledge and technologies in organic agriculture and scale these up to offer mainstream solutions that can lead to win-wins for producers, the economy, and the environment.
