Crop specialists say farmers should be more mindful if applying pre-harvest glyphosate this fall, given many fields have uneven levels of maturity.
They say producers will have to make sure all crops reach their maturity level before applying. If they apply too early, residues could end up in kernels and potentially jeopardize markets.
“Consumers around the world are paying more attention to glyphosate, which means there is an increased focus from end users,” said Jeremy Boychyn, an agronomy research extension specialist with the Alberta wheat and barley commissions.
“It’s important for us as an export country to make sure we are taking proper steps to minimize residue risk.”
