Disentangling the local and landscape determinants of agricultural pest control

Monday, November 8, 2021, 4:00 p.m. - 4:50 p.m.

Agricultural production has grown to meet the demands of a larger and wealthier population, due, in large part, to the intensification and simplification of agricultural systems. The concern is that these simplified landscapes, composed of larger fields, less natural habitat, and with fewer crops in rotation, have increased pest problems and resultant pesticide use. Building on ecological theory and leveraging a data-driven approach, this talk will provide novel and detailed insight into the local and landscape determinants of the level and stability of agricultural insecticide use.

Guest Speaker: Ashley Larsen, Assistant Professor, Agricultural Ecology, Land Use, Landscape Ecology, UC Santa Barbara, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management
