Keep it Clean Pre-Harvest Tips & Tools Webinar 2024

Keep it Clean is hosting a webinar on July 10, 2024 at 11:00am CDT aimed at protecting the marketability of Canada’s canola, cereal and pulse crops. Topics include proper staging for pre-harvest glyphosate application, the importance of following pre-harvest intervals for crop protection products and scouting for disease.

Tip #1: Use Acceptable Pesticides Only

Only apply pesticides that are both registered for use on
your crop in Canada and won’t create trade concerns.

Tip #2: Always Read
and Follow the Label

Before you apply any crop protection product,
read the label to find the application rate,
timing and pre-harvest interval (PHI). 

Tip #3: Manage
Disease Pressures

An integrated disease management plan is
important to maintain yield and profitability.
Learn how to manage diseases like blackleg
in canola and fusarium head blight (FHB) in cereals.

Tip #4: Store Your
Crop Properly

Proper storage helps to maintain crop
quality and keeps the bulk free of harmful
cross-contaminants.

Tip #5: Deliver
What You Declare

The Declaration of Eligibility affidavit 
is a legally binding document and
individuals can be held liable for the
costs associated with contamination
of a bin or shipment.

5 Tips to Keep Your Crops Market-Ready

TIP#1 | Use Acceptable Pesticides Only

Only apply pesticides that are registered for use on your crop in Canada, are acceptable to both domestic and export customers, and won’t create trade concerns.


TIP#2 | Always Read and Follow the Label

Always follow the label for application rate, timing and pre-harvest interval (PHI). Applying pesticides without following the label directions is illegal and may result in unacceptable residues in the harvested grain.


TIP#3 | Manage Disease Pressures

An integrated disease management plan is not only important to maintain the yield and quality of your crops, but also helps to ensure Canada’s canola, cereals and pulses meet the phytosanitary requirements of our export markets.


TIP#4 | store your crop properly

Proper storage helps to maintain crop quality and keeps the bulk free of harmful cross-contaminants that may create market risk.


TIP#5 | deliver what you declare

The Declaration of Eligibility affidavit is a legal assertion that your crop is the variety and/or class you have designated, and it was not treated with the crop protection products specified in the declaration to ensure it meets the requirements of our export markets.
