This webinar looks at the current status of biological weed control agents in Canada. Biological control has had some success over the years but with increasing pressure on chemical pesticide use, it is important to keep updated on what is happening with biological control agents. Join Tim as he reviews the current status of biological weed control agents and what the future looks like.

One of the enduring challenges in spraying is providing good canopy coverage for late season spraying of taller canopies, either for desiccation or fungicide. The use of double nozzles, boom height, water volumes, and travel speed are explored for improving pesticide performance. New double nozzle technologies available from a number of manufacturers are introduced and discussed.

An overview of how a pesticide is taken from the lab to the market. Pesticide development is a long, expensive process and must jump many hurdles in order to make it to market. Join Tim Garner as he looks at the steps in developing a pesticide. Realize how the registration process ensures that the public, applicator and the environment are protected with the testing that is required.

The Department of Environment has monitored the occurrence of pesticides in surface water and drinking water for a number of years at many sites throughout Alberta. This presentation discusses the results of this monitoring and the implications this has on the quality of the water in Alberta. In addition, limited monitoring on pesticide residues in rainwater and air are discussed.

Many pesticide applicators spend longs days and many days in a row combatting pests. With our short growing season in many parts of Canada it forces applicators to work hard, long and fast. Join Tim as he discusses the facts, causes, consequences, effects and signs of fatigue. Also will be discussed how to get a better sleep and what employers and employees can do to reduce fatigue and therefore reduce mistakes and accidents

This session is not meant to make you climatologists or TV forecasters. This session is meant to help you understand the drivers of air movement (applied at the work location) and to anticipate when that air movement may help you or hinder you in your efforts to get your treatment product through the air to your treatment target. Successful completion of this session, it will make your job easier and improve the percentage of product that makes it to the target. It will also reinforce your awareness of how critical this is to our industry.

You must take part 1 before taking part 2 This session is designed to help you apply the fundamentals of weather (from part 1) to 10 common application situations that we all face, but that are so localized that no public forecast could possibly alert you to them. It is meant to help you understand the movement of air and to anticipate when that air movement may help you or hinder you in your efforts to get your treatment product through the air to your treatment target (and more importantly, ONLY your treatment target).
