Protecting Canola Exports
We’re all in this together. Canada exports 90% of the canola we produce, and shipments containing even the smallest amount of unnacceptable residues or de-registered varieties can be rejected, causing millions of dollars in losses and placing future business at risk. Don’t spoil the bunch. Produce export-quality canola by following these Keep it Clean guidelines closely.
Registered vs. Acceptable Pesticides: They’re not always the same. Registration of a pesticide doesn’t guarantee that it is acceptable to export customers. One challenge is that registration of a pesticide in Canada can pre-date the establishment of maximum residue limits (MRLs) in major export markets, and in some cases this can create a market risk. Check with your grain buyer before you spray to ensure your crop will be export ready.
