Newly updated crop profiles for asparagus, carrot and rutabaga are available to download for free from the Government of Canada Publications web site or through the Crop profiles webpage.

Crop profiles are documents that provide a high level overview of production and a more detailed look at pest management practices for a variety of agricultural crops in Canada.

Profiles reflect pest occurrence along with grower concerns about pest management for the crop profiled, and are updated on a three year rotating schedule. They are not crop production guides, and growers are encouraged to consult provincial crop production guides for recommendations about pest management in their regions.
