AgAnnex Talks
IWCA series: Christine Noronha

June 12, 2022  By Manure Manager

Some children develop an interest at a young age that quickly grows into an obsession and, eventually, a career. For Christine Noronha, growing up in Pakistan, that interest just happened to be insects.

Noronha, now an entomologist with AAFC based in P.E.I., has devoted her life to the study of entomology, and knows that the smallest pests can have the biggest impact on yields, livelihoods and the environment. Her research on alternative methods to pest control has been embraced and studied across Canada and beyond. But beyond the bugs, Noronha is also passionate about guiding other students, particularly young women and people new to Canada, through their journeys in academia.

Agriculture editor Bree Rody chats with Noronha in this episode of AgAnnex Talks as part of this year’s Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture program. IWCA is a program created by the agricultural brands at Annex Business Media designed to recognize women who make a difference in Canada’s ag industry and provide them with a platform to share their knowledge, triumphs and advice.

Stay tuned as we bring you the rest of our 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture.
