Data Collection on the Polar Vortex: Horticulture Nova Scotia

Thursday, September 7, 2023

                                        Distributed on Behalf of Horticulture Nova Scotia 

Dear Producers,

In February 2023 we experienced an extreme cold event that has caused damage to many crops and income loss to many producers here in Nova Scotia.


Horticulture Nova Scotia in working together with the NS Department of Agriculture in assessing and providing program support for impacted producers.  The details of exactly what the program of support will be are yet to be determined. Right now what we need is data.


Could you please take a few minutes to answer this 3 question data collection form.


After you submit, you will be asked to verify your email. This is an authentication process and must occur in order for your results to be submitted. It is to keep everything secure. I have outlined this inside the questionnaire, but please know this information will be kept private and will be used to establish averages for each of the different crops that have been impacted. Your name is require so that it can be verify that information has been collected from all Nova Scotia producers.

Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


Many thanks,
