Pesticide use in Manitoba, 2013
Use our pesticide use database to see the top users of pesticides in Manitoba. You can also check if your school district or golf course uses pesticides.
The database was created from annual reports filed with Manitoba Conservation by every pesticide permit holder in the province. Those permit holders are typically rural weed control districts, school divisions, rail and utility companies, municipalities and golf courses. Permit holders spray on Crown land, along rural roads and ditches,oin school and sports fields and in many other publically-accessible locations. The reports cover the 2013 weed control year. Excluded from the database are pesticides used to kill rodents. The database also doesn’t include the pesticides used by farmers and private homeowners, meaning it offers an incomplete picture of the province’s chemical use.
