Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has wrapped up, or is expecting to wrap up in 2020, several pesticide re-evaluation decisions for commonly used products in the Canadian potato industry such as Group M fungicides and neonicotinoids. We chat with Tracy Shinners-Carnelley, vice president of research and quality at Peak of the Market, on what this means for potato growers. Shinners-Carnelley shares a quick update, what to keep in mind for the future, and speaks about the responsibility of the industry as a whole.
