 Minor Use Pesticide Priorities for Nova Scotia Berry Crops

It’s almost time for our annual selection of minor use pesticide priorities for Nova Scotia crops, and we hope you can join us! The session for berries will take place virtually via Zoom on Wednesday, November 16 from 1 to 2 PM. 

Our minor use representative, Michelle Cortens will briefly outline the process. Then as a group you will be guided through the different crops to assess the priority pest control needs for insects, weeds/growth regulators, and diseases. If you have potential solutions on your radar (products registered in other crops or for other uses) or have heard of products you might be interested in, please bring those along as well.

Any grower is welcome to attend, so if you know of someone who would like to attend please let me know so I can include them in the contact list. If you can’t make the meeting, please send me your critical pest issues and any potential solutions for consideration at the meeting.

The selected priorities will then be submitted on behalf of the province and used in ranking the national priorities.


Please find attached the documents for the berry selections made over the last two years.
