Best Practices

In New Brunswick, the Department of Environment and Local Government (DELG) enforces a number of operational conditions for glyphosate use beyond the label instructions. These measures add increased safety for human health and wildlife living near the treatment sites.

These additional measures include

  • The use of detailed GIS technology to plot the treatment sites
  • Buffer zones around private land and water courses (marshlands, rivers, ponds, etc.)
  • Certification and training for applicators
  • Mandatory public notifications
  • Proposed treatment areas in New Brunswick
  • Notices in major New Brunswick newspapers
  • Signs outlining treatment details and timelines posted at access points to all blocks that will be treated
