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)
