5 Simple Tips
to Keep Your Crops Ready for Market

TIP#1 | Use Acceptable Pesticides Only

Only apply pesticides that are both 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 or desiccants without following the label directions is illegal and may result in unacceptable residues.


TIP#3 | Manage Disease Pressures

An integrated disease management plan is important to maintain yield and profitability and can help protect Canada’s reputation as a supplier of high-quality canola, cereals and pulses.


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 legal assertion that your crop is the variety and/or class you have designated and it was not treated with the crop input products specified in the declaration.
