Join us tomorrow to be a part of the minor use pesticide priority selection process

Tuesday, November 21, 2023

 The session for field and greenhouse vegetable crops will take place virtually via Zoom on Wednesday, November 22 from 10 AM to 12 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 know of someone who would like to attend please let me know so I can include them on the contact list. If you can’t make the meeting, please send us 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.

If you are interested in attending, please contact or for the meeting link and password.
