Managing Pre-Harvest Glyphosate Application

Canola growers are being reminded that pre-harvest glyphosate applications should be carefully managed to help ensure crops meet the needs of domestic and export customers.

Applying pre-harvest glyphosate for weed control too early can result in unacceptable product residues in harvested grain, which can create market risk.
