NFU Applauds Ontario Government’s Application of Precautionary Principle to Neonicotinoid Use

The National Farmers Union welcomes the Ontario government's announcement earlier this week that it is going to take concrete actions to protect pollinators, including limiting the use of neonicotinoid seed treatments in corn and soybeans.

The 2014 canola acreage declined by 47% from 2013 to an estimated 22,000 acres. Northern Ontario farmers reduced plantings the most by nearly 70%, to 5600 acres.
