Dr. Tyler Wist, a leading entomologist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada based in Saskatchewan, studies the raging battle between good and bad insects that plays out in farmers’ fields across Canada. From building mobile apps to track pests and beneficial insects to answering why quinoa has trouble growing on the Canadian prairies, his research is based on some interesting insect relationships with each other and with plants. Join Dr. Wist on a visual odyssey as he takes you on a microscopic journey to solve macroscopic problems. This talk will inspire a new respect for the six-legged @Field Heroes that are protecting your favorite crops.
