Status Report for Biopesticide Projects from 2005 to 2010

Between 2005 and 2010, the PMC's biopesticides regulatory support was focussed on working with registrants to submit high-quality registration packages to the PMRA in an effort to increase grower access to reduced risk pest management tools. This work was product-centred and not tied to specific use patterns. The following products were successfully made available to Canadian growers through this initiative.
