    Abstract

    Guidelines are currently being developed to outline requirements for nontarget plant testing for pesticide registration in Canada. The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC), under contract to Environment Canada, evaluated international regulatory requirements and test protocols, identified research needs, and recommended guidelines for Canada, by reviewing the scientific literature and databases, and consulting with regulators and scientists involved in phytotoxicity testing. Highlights of the SRC reports and a review by a federal working committee are presented to stimulate additional research, and to solicit critical review from scientists and regulators prior to formal drafting of Canadian regulatory guidelines.
