Jacob Basso

Jacob Basso recently completed his Master of Science degree from the University of Guelph where he specialized in the IPM of greenhouse pests. Under the supervision of Dr. Cynthia Scott-Dupree and Dr. Roselyne Labbé (AAFC), his research focused on the development of a sterile insect technique system as an alternative strategy for managing an economically important pest in North America, the pepper weevil. Jacob has presented his work for scientists and growers alike and hopes to deliver sustainable solutions for managing challenging pests in Canada.
