Organic ‘Honeycrisp’ apples growing in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. These three-year old trees are part of an Organic Science Cluster project, aimed at developing weed control technologies and a scab management strategy for organic apples grown in Canada. The goal of the research is to develop strategies that will increase profitability and sustainability while dramatically reducing the pesticide load on the environment, reducing carbon emissions and improving soil, water and air quality.
