Protecting Our Crops

Letting farmers keep the tools to protect their crops

WHAT IS THE ISSUE?

Ontario’s grain farmers care about the quality of ingredients they put on Canadian tables. The 28,000 farm families across Ontario know they have a responsibility to deliver the high-quality, sustainably-grown grains Canadians expect from our farms and they take that responsibility seriously, ensuring every crop is planted and harvested with care.

Canada also has some of the strictest regulations globally for pesticide use; Health Canada regulates every pesticide in Canada to ensure it can be used safely and not pose a risk to human health or the environment. The use of environmentally safe pesticides allows farmers to:

  • Protect current crops from disastrous weeds, pests and diseases that can impact farmers’ yields, resulting in issues in the global food supply chain
  • Eliminate or reduce the need for plowing/tilling of farmland which results in fewer CO2 emissions
  • Capture more carbon within the soil
  • Prolong the longevity of their soil

But the Government of Canada is considering unnecessarily opening and modifying the existing Pest Control Products Act which could affect farmers’ crops and future yields and mean further disruption to the food supply chain domestically and around the world.
