In 1991, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks (MELP) established the objective of encouraging and promoting adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM methods reduce reliance on pesticides and eliminate unnecessary pesticide uses. By promoting IPM, MELP anticipated a 25% reduction in pesticide use province wide by the year 2001. In 1992, MELP commissioned the first survey of pesticide sales and use records in British Columbia, using data from 1991. The survey was conducted by Norecol Environmental Consultants Ltd. (Norecol 1993). MELP's intention was that similar surveys would be conducted periodically to document changes in pesticide use. In 1996, Norecol, Dames & Moore, Inc. (NDM) was commissioned to undertake a survey of 1995 pesticide data and to compare the results with the 1991 study.
