Peter is Perennia’s wild blueberry specialist.  He works closely with the wild blueberry industry in Nova Scotia to assist produces with production, pest identification, pest controls and whole system pest management issues.  Peter has extensive knowledge of pesticide usage and regulation, weed science, and production systems of many other horticultural and field crops. He works with and supports other specialists to provide the best possible pest management advice.

He promotes the use of integrated pest management approaches in all cropping systems and works to identify and find long-term solutions to pest problems with individual producers and for larger industry issues.

Peter's projects include administering pesticide efficacy trials, assisting in minor use pesticide priority selection from a Nova Scotia perspective and acting as an inspector with the Nova Scotia Strawberry and Raspberry Nursery Certification Program. He also updates pest management guides for vegetables, blueberry, strawberry and raspberries.

A requested presenter at conferences and association meetings, Peter has given talks on topics ranging from IPM principles to the proper use of herbicides. He has also authored a number of fact sheets and articles.
