Wind trajectories

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) have been working together to study the potential of trajectories for monitoring insect movements since the late 1990s.

The entire list of 2020 Wind Trajectory Reports is available here.

Weekly Update

The phenology models used to predict insect staging and associated risk to field crops on the Prairies is a complex system with multiple moving parts.  Last week, phenology model output and map development was not available owing to the detection of an error in one of the underlying datasets required to run the models.  We are pleased to report that the error has been resolved for this week.

At this moment, segments of earlier 2020 Weekly Updates have been pulled back.  The phenology models for Wk01 and Wk02 will be reposted once we have had opportunity to re-run the models with the correct datasets and re-map the model outputs.  Stay tuned and thank you for your patience!

Access information to support your in-field insect monitoring efforts in the complete Weekly Update either as a series of Posts for Week 4 OR  a downloadable PDF.
