A new informational campaign is being launched to inform farmers getting ready for seeding that market access restriction is a real concern.
There’s a growing number of countries creating their own maximum residue limits lists, moving away from the global standard codex.
Manager of Market Access and Trade Policy for Pulse Canada, Mac Ross, is part of the campaign organized by Pulse Canada, Cereals Canada, and the Canola Council of Canada.
Ross has some tips for managing their risk heading into the planting season.
“What farmers can do to mitigate this risk is not exceed the product’s labeled rate, time the application according to the label, and also to consult with your grain buyer or your exporter processor about which crop protection products are acceptable in international markets.”
