Austranada's Avatar May 15, 2019 | 17:35 123 This fellow farmer needs all the support he can get. Please pm me if you're reading. To those that still feel they need to use product be careful and heed the warnings. As stated months ago keep accurate records as required by law, use your PPE, traceability, accountability is paramount. Carbon tax revenues could help fund the spray audits coming as well as food residue testing on a broad scale. Reply With Quote

    Its the active ingredient that will be banned. You could call it Brainfart brand don't matter Reply With Quote
    May 16, 2019 | 07:22 128 Glyphosate won't be banned. Complete economic and cultural collapse would happen. Health Canada says safe. EPA safe. World ag economy built on it.

    Instead let's ban wingnuts that try to destroy farming systems that have little understanding of soil health, or anything modern farming.

    Also ban frivolous lawsuits and ambulance chasing lawyers. Are you listening Tony Merchant?

    excellent post ,
    on a different note , tobacco does kill, every day , how come its not banned?
    don't care one way or another , just curious
    maybe what they have to do is put a consumption tax on roundup, then all will be well Reply With Quote
    May 16, 2019 | 09:05 130 Looks like the tax on tobacco is maxed out. Now the talk from health Canada is to go after fat people with sugar tax. Obesity death rates from ten different cancers are
    much higher than smokers. Reply With Quote

    Wrong again. Works VERY well here. Tank mixed often to avoid resistance. If you were for real you'd understand.

    Resistance always a concern for every pesticide including fungicide. Reply With Quote

    May 16, 2019 | 17:32 134 The list of probable carcinogens is endless. Ban them all starting with alcohol. We use many products that are carcinogens. Stay out of the sun. Reply With Quote

    Austranada there are 3 products approved for pre harvest use in field peas, reglone, heat and glyphosate. Reglone'so oral LD50 is 886 mg/kg for rats. Heat's oral LD50 is >2000 mg/kg for rats. Glyphosate's oral LD50 is 4320 mg/kg for rats.(source 2018 Alberta government crop production book) Why is it that you continually run down the use of the safest product we have available for this purpose? Swathing peas here generally results in a lot of wind damage, straight cutting is far superior. Reply With Quote

    He does it because he can, even in the face of rigorous testing by Health Canada and the EPA, and decades of safe use.

    He can say what he wants without impunity. It's what the modern day activist or hippie or disgruntled failed conventional farmer can do with the interweb. Reply With Quote

    We've been over this LD 50 flawed science in several previous posts. Please educate yourself before trying to use that fallacious argument. Lethal dose that kills 50% of the rats in a one time exposure within two weeks. That is not what is happening in the real world yet glyphosate's supposed safe use revolves around that. Users and consumers are unknowingly exposed to a much larger degree. Its got a new name actually
    ROUNDmayochUP. Perfect product for the coprophilic mainstream farming methodology. We haven't even discussed the combined effects on human health of several residues yet like gly/saflufenacil. Another class action out of Quebec I see. And new seven year low set this week in Bayer share price. Any wise businessman would at the very least have a serious look at changing production practices.

    May 25, 2019 | 07:01 143 What drives you to keep posting? Monetary gain? What is in it for you?

    A recent study involving 45,000 pesticide applicators found no evidence of increased cancer. People exposed to many magnitudes higher then anyone in the population. https://academic.oup.com/jnci/article/110/5/509/4590280

    Every regulatory agency in the world says its safe, political reasons only not to approve.

    Same question applies to another single issue poster on here. Do we chalk it up to altruism, or follow the money? Reply With Quote

    Honest answer to your question and all you can do is pull out if the debate again with failed attempt at an insult. You haven't got the courage to debate LD 50. Still doing research? Reply With Quote
