Upcoming WEBINAR: Pesticide Re-Evaluation Updates for Fruit and Vegetables and Nova Scotia Weed Survey

Saturday, April 4, 2020

Please join us for the last session of our Getting Into the Weeds series.  This upcoming webinar is on Tuesday, April 7 from 1:00 - 2:00 and is on Pesticide Re-Evaluation Updates for Fruit and Vegetables and Nova Scotia Weed Survey.
In the last few years there have been a string of re-evaluations on pesticides, making it hard to keep up with the constantly evolving changes to pest management options. Gavin Graham, New Brunswick Minor Use Coordinator, and Peter Burgess, Perennia Integrated Pest Management Specialist, will discuss how this affects horticulture crops. At this session we will go over some of the recent changes in the last few years, some that are likely to come down the pike in the coming months, and how the process all works.  
The Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture have been conducting a rotating annual weed survey. Past surveys focused on corn, soybean, carrot, onion and strawberry. Information gathered from the surveys can be used to assess management practices, and determine changes in species composition and densities. This can prove to be important in identifying research needs and developing weed management strategies into the future. Angela Gourd, Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture Plant Protection Coordinator, will take us through the results from strawberry, onion, and carrot weed surveys.

PESTICIDE POINTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS WEBINAR.
