Q&A with CropLife - Happening November 22 at 1pm AST

Thursday, November 16, 2023

The Protected Agriculture Stewardship Standards are new on the block and apply to any crops grown in structures such as greenhouses, shade houses, hoop houses, high tunnels, containers and warehouses. These standards were established to assist protected producers in the identification and mitigation of risks associated with the application of conventional and biological pest control products. With the implementation of these standards starting January 1, 2024, there is not much time to get things sorted.  

Join Perennia’s Protected Crop Specialist and Dr. Justine Taylor for a session dedicated to answering your questions about these new standards! Dr. Taylor is the executive director of stewardship and sustainability for CropLife Canada.  In this role Justine supports both industry stewardship efforts as the executive director of the Agrichemical Warehousing Standards Association and contributes to the larger sustainability efforts of Canada’s plant science sector. Justine comes to this role after nearly 10 years in the greenhouse sector covering science and government relations issues for the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers. A keen supporter of collaboration, Justine contributes to several cross-sectoral initiatives and sits on several local volunteer boards in her home town of Windsor, Ontario. Justine holds a Ph.D. from the University of Alberta with a focus on analytical chemistry.

Check out our website for more information and registration options. Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the live event to provide clarity on the new standards and how they affect your farm.

Hope to see you there!
