Wednesday Tec Talk: Beneficial Insects

Today’s Wednesday Tec Talk comes as a listener suggestion and we talk IPM or Integrated Pest Management and beneficial insects. We talk about the types of insects in farming, what a beneficial insect is and why farmers should be trying to promote beneficials in their farming and agricultural systems. We also briefly touch on GM and how genetically modified crops have allowed farmers to use less pesticides and promote greater insect diversity.

Check it out on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts from.
