The QPMA, as a partner of the Fruits and Vegetables Growers of Canada (FVGC), invites you to take part in this survey.

Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has requested use information for the insecticide methoxyfenozide. Methoxyfenozide (in the end use product Intrepid Insecticide) is registered for the control of insects in a wide range of horticultural crops.

Before conducting its next risk assessment on methoxyfenozide (Intrepid Insecticide), PMRA will consider grower use information received from the Fruit and Vegetable Growers of Canada (FVGC) for the following crops:

  • Fruits:

Apples, pears, other pome fruit, raspberries (red and black), other cranberries, cranberries, blueberries (highbush and lowbush), other bushberries, grapes, cherries, peaches, other stone fruits

  • Vegetables:

Broccoli, cabbage, other brassicas (cole) leafy vegetables, sweet corn, cucumbers, melons, pumpkins, squash & zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, other fruiting vegetables, lettuce (head and leaf), other leafy vegetables, beans (succulent), peas (succulent), sweet potatoes, other tuberous and corm vegetables, herbs (except chives)

For FVGC to respond effectively to the PMRA consultation on fruit and vegetable uses of methoxyfenozide (Intrepid Insecticide), the FVGC ask that growers complete this survey. Grower input on how the product is actually used is essential. In the absence of this additional information, PMRA must use the most conservative scenario during the risk assessment process (e.g., 100% crop treated, maximum possible application rates, etc.).

Responses to this survey are anonymous.

With the FVGC, the QPMA thanks you for completing this survey before Friday November 25, 2022.

Thank you in advance for your collaboration!
