Keep Canada’s Canola Clean

Canada exports more than 90% of the canola we produce, and shipments containing even the smallest amount of unacceptable residues or de-registered varieties can be rejected, causing millions of dollars in losses and placing future business at risk.

As a grower, you play an important role in keeping canola markets open. Protect Canada’s reputation as a quality supplier by following the Keep it Clean guidelines to produce export-quality canola.
