TORONTO, June 26 /CNW/ - Are you looking for a way to balance your
coverage of the questions being raised about pesticide use? CropLife Canada
has been representing the developers, manufacturers and distributors of plant
science innovations for over 50 years. We know the pesticide industry and we
are here to answer your questions.
Municipalities across Canada are being pressured to ban the use of lawn
and garden pest control products. While CropLife Canada supports efforts to
eliminate unnecessary or incorrect use of lawn and garden pesticides, our
organization opposes an outright ban on these products, all of which are
registered and approved for use by Health Canada.
CropLife Canada representatives are available to:
- Speak to the safety of the products
- Refute the validity of the most commonly cited 'proof' for banning
- Provide examples of the many benefits of pesticides
- Explain Integrated Pest Management and why it's a better option than
CropLife Canada is the trade association representing the developers,
manufacturers and distributors of plant science innovations - pest control
products and plant biotechnology - for use in agriculture, urban and public
health settings. CropLife Canada stands for safety and innovation supported by
a foundation of continuous research and a strong commitment to stewardship.
