2020 Pulse MRL Advisory

Know The Market Impacts Of Your Crop Protection Product Choices

The success of the Canadian pulse industry relies on the ability to export the pulses produced in Canada. More than 85% of Canada’s pulse production is exported to feed the world, and the demands of the end user are becoming increasingly complex. Market access is important to the Canadian pulse industry, and growers play a key role in keeping the doors to export markets open. Growers are encouraged to review the information on the next page of this document before proceeding with their pulse crop management plans. The use of certain crop protection products may restrict marketing options due to missing or misaligned MRLs in the export market.
