The comment period for the PMRA registration reviews for two neonicotinoid canola seed treatments ended November 13, but the Canadian canola industry is asking the PMRA to take time and consider incoming research results before making a final decision.
The canola industry is focused on the future. We know that we must not only increase yield, we must also be a partner in achieving society’s environmental goals. That’s why we have set bold environmental sustainability goals to accompany our 2025 production goals:
Increased production per acre can have trickle-down benefits for the farm economy and for the environment, as long as those higher yields are achieved through greater efficiency of inputs and care for the land.
Canada’s much-increased soil carbon sequestration since 2005 has been driven largely by the increase in area and yield of canola.
