Last Reminder: Grower Minor Use Input

Monday, November 20, 2023

 Minor Use local Berry Workshop Grower Input Requested!

Please save the date for our annual selection of minor use pesticide priorities for Nova Scotia crops. The session for berry crops will take place virtually via Zoom on Tuesday, November 21 from 1 PM to 2 PM. 

Perennia’s minor use representative, Michelle Cortens, and the provincial minor use coordinator Deney Augustine Joseph 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 are interested please let me know and I will forward the Zoom link.  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.

Hope to see you there, Sonny Murray
