Ontario Neonic Regulations

August 10, 2015

For the 2016 planting season, the Ontario government is looking for a 50 per cent reduction in neonic treated acres.  The following is a summary of what you need to know and what you need to do for the 2016 crop year as we know today.
 

  • If you choose to buy 50 per cent or less neonic treated corn and soybean seed, no pest assessment is required, but a Seed Amount Declaration is required to be submitted to your seed supplier(s)
  • Over 50 per cent neonic seed use, requires a pest assessment submitted with seed order intentions
