Questions about quinclorac?

May 4, 2016 - Issue 7

Are you are a grower who sprayed quinclorac on canola during the 2015 growing season and is now looking for a place to sell your grain? If so, be sure to ask your local elevator or processing facility if you can deliver to them, and if not, which elevators or facilities in your area may still take it.

As you may know, in 2015 there were limited opportunities to sell canola that had been sprayed with quinclorac throughout the growing season due to concerns of possible impacts on trade. In 2016, the member companies of the Western Grains Elevator Association and the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association have individually advised that they will not accept delivery of canola grown and harvested in 2016 that has been treated with quinclorac.
