Oat buyer says no glyphosate pre-harvest
Posted Apr. 22nd, 2015 by Robert Arnason
Grain Millers, a major oat buyer in Western Canada, will no longer purchase oats if the crop has been desiccated with glyphosate.
In an April 20 memo to Prairie oat growers, Grain Millers said the new policy was “driven by functional performance attributes of finished products manufactured from oats known to have been treated with glyphosate and by customer demand.”
Tyson said the company discovered that glyphosate was the cause of the frost-like damage, through a process of elimination.
