Canadian growers export 90% of their canola as seed, oil or meal to 55 markets worldwide. To remain competitive, our practices at home must align with the requirements of our customer markets. Canola Council of Canada's Keep It Clean program outlines simple steps to ensure our markets remain open and your canola is ready for export.
Growers are advised not to use herbicides containing the active ingredient quinclorac in 2016. China, one of our largest trading partners, has yet to establish a MRL. For more information on alternative options to manage cleavers and on what is being done to secure Chinese approvals, visit the Canola Council of Canada or SaskCanola.
