Oct 19. 2023 (Ottawa, ON) – The Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) enthusiastically supports MP Kody Blois for introducing Bill C-359, a pivotal legislation amending the Feeds Act, Seeds Act and Pest Control Products Act. This bill will enable swift provisional registration for feeds, seeds and pest control products endorsed by two or more reputable jurisdictions, breaking barriers for grain farmers’ access to innovative tools.
“Innovative pesticides, herbicides and seeds are essential for our grain producers,” stated Kyle Larkin, Executive Director of GGC. “This legislation ensures they can continue to adopt sustainable practices, increase yields and support Canada’s ambitious climate change objectives.”
GGC would like to thank MP Kody Blois for his dedication to Canadian agriculture and urges the government and all Members of Parliament to support Bill C-359 to bolster grain farmers access to innovative products.
