Keep it Clean is a joint initiative of the Canola Council of Canada, Pulse Canada, Cereals Canada, Barley Council of Canada and Prairie Oat Growers Association, providing growers with tips and tools for growing crops that meet the requirements of our domestic and export customers.
The Canola Council of Canada and Canadian Canola Growers Association partnered to survey wetlands for neonic residue, providing the data to the PMRA for its review of neonic seed treatments. Of the 157 samples taken, 80 per cent had no neonics detected and the other 20 per cent had extremely low levels.
Canola growers, through their provincial canola organizations, are helping to drive the research priorities for canola in Canada. Provincial research committee chairs explain the benefit of grower-funded and grower-directed research.
