The Dow AgroSciences IVM Stewardship Award recognizes both individuals and organizations for their outstanding efforts and contributions to environmental stewardship. Dow AgroSciences is pleased to announce the following recipients of the 2012 IVM Stewardship Award.
Individual Winner – David Spata; Canadian Pacific Railway
In 2012, Dave was a strong partner in a Dow AgroSciences stewardship initiative. Dave works hands on with contactors, and contributes his time to vegetation management associations as a board member and industry member across Canada. His commitment to new technology has been key to improving efficiency and effectiveness of CP Rail’s vegetation management program.
Organizational Winner – Nova Scotia Power
Nova Scotia Power’s sustainable approach to managing vegetation on their rights-of-ways has helped increase the programs effectiveness and positive working relationships with land owners. The use of GIS technology has helped with the tracking, mapping and scheduling of maintenance, helping managers make better decisions. Their integrated program and forward thinking approach has extended the time between maintenance cycles. More information on Nova Scotia Power’s vegetation management progam will be featured in Dow AgroSciences upcoming Access publication.
