Reminder: Pesticide Minor Use Priorities meeting tomorrow! (Thursday Nov 17)

Wednesday, November 16, 2022

It’s time for the annual selection of minor use pesticide priorities for Nova Scotia crops. All growers, conventional or organic, are invited to discuss your pesticide needs, concerns and ideas for 2023.

The session for vegetables will take place virtually via Zoom tomorrow, Thursday, November 17 from 10 AM to 12 PM. Email me for the zoom link -


During the discussion, our minor use representative, Michelle Cortens, will briefly outline the minor use pesticide 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.


The priorities we select at the meeting will then be submitted on behalf of the province and used in ranking the national priorities, so please join us and share your thoughts!


Looking forward to seeing you there!
