Report on pesticide reduction plans for golf courses in Québec

The Ministère is responsible for implementing the Pesticides Management Code. Under Section 73 of the Code, as of April 3, 2006, all Québec golf course owners and operators that apply pesticides or have them applied are required to submit a pesticide reduction plan to the Minister every three years.

The Ministère has decided to conduct an accounting of golf course pesticide reduction plans in order to assess the situation and reveal current pesticide reduction trends in that sector of activity.

The document provides a breakdown of the use of pesticides on golf courses by administrative region across Québec, based on application quantity data and monitoring of the Québec pesticide pressure index and risk indicators since Section 73 of the Pesticides Management Code came into effect.
