The Canola Council of Canada is reminding growers of the importance of planning canola storage requirements carefully, especially where the use of malathion is being considered. To avoid unacceptable residues that jeopardize crop marketability, growers should make sure to keep canola out of bins that have been treated with malathion for a minimum of six months since the last bin treatment.

Cereals Canada would like to remind growers that presence of the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON) in wheat, barley and oats may upset their opportunities to market their crop. Also commonly known as vomitoxin, DON is harmful to humans and animals at high levels.

Cereals Canada is pleased that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established a maximum residue limit on chlormequat chloride, the active ingredient in MANIPULATOR Plant Growth Regulator.

The Canola Council welcomes the recent decision of the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues to advance for adoption the proposed maximum residue limit (MRL) for quinclorac in canola.

Unacceptable residues can sink a shipment – know the 2018 products of concern before application.
