The Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) is currently preparing a response to PMRA’s proposed re-evaluation decision on imidacloprid and other neonicotinoid use (example products: Admire, Intercept, Genesis, Gaucho). To ensure an effective response, CHC requests feedback from growers on their use of these pesticides.
Each commodity sector (tree fruit, berries/grapes, greenhouse vegetables, field vegetables, potatoes) has its own survey on neonicotinoid use, which means that growers should complete multiple surveys if they produce more than one commodity.
Each survey takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and can be saved and continued at any time prior to the deadline.
Submission deadline: February 7, 2017.
IMIDACLOPRID (trade names: Admire, Genesis, Gaucho, Intercept)
CLOTHIANIDIN (trade names: Titan, Poncho, Prosper, Emesto Quantum)
THIAMETHOXAM (trade names: Actara, Minecto Duo, Helix, Cruiser, Flagship)
