Canadian grain is safe when it comes to pesticide residues, says Doug Chorney, assistant chief commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC), reports the Manitoba Co-Operator.

During the recent Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) advisory council meeting, farmer Paul Gregory told Chorney consumers are increasingly concerned about glyphosate residues on crops.

The CGC tests Canadian exports for pesticide residues annually, Chorney said. Because the process is complex and expensive the tests are run all at one time and not in ‘real time’ as the product is shipped out, he said.
