Total Harvest Area Treated:

National Forestry Database. (2010). Area Treated, Rate and Amount of Insecticide Applied by Insect Pest, Product, and Province/Territory, 1992-2008 (Table 9.3). Pest Control Product Use - National Tables. Last updated January 29, 2010. http://nfdp.ccfm.org/pest/national_e.php (accessed May 12, 2010).

Note: The only type of measured pesticide used in  Alberta for an extended period of time (more than three years) is Bacillus thuringiensis. Tebufenozide was used briefly in the later 1990s, but is not included in this table. 

Percentage of Harvest Area Treated:Calculated by dividing "Total Harvest Area Treated" (this table) by "Total Area Harvested" (Under "annual cutblock" table).
