Archive for September, 2015

As of July 1, 2015 there are new regulatory requirements for Ontario corn and soybean growers to buy and use neonicotinoid treated corn and/or soybean seed.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) held several regional information sessions in late August and early September 2015 to ensure stakeholders are aware of and understand the new regulatory requirements.

OMAFRA will hold the following two additional teleconference/webinars for stakeholders to learn about the new requirements:
