Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has released the fourth edition of the crop profile for greenhouse cucumbers.

The 2020 crop profile provide baseline information on production and pest management practices and document growers’ needs to address pest management gaps and issues for specific crops grown in Canada.

Information is developed through extensive consultation with stakeholders and data collected from reporting provinces. Reporting provinces are selected based on their acreage of the target crop (greater than 10 per cent of the national production) and provide qualitative data on pest occurrence and integrated pest management practices used by growers in those provinces. For greenhouse cucumber production, the reporting provinces are British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
