    It’s no secret that world’s population is increasing. It’s no secret that global population is growing. In 2050, the population will be 9.7 million people.1 But, the amount of land that could be used for agriculture in the world isn’t growing in the same way as we do. This poses serious challenges for farmers responsible for producing sufficient high-quality food for Canadians as well as other people all over the world.

    Canada is the fifth largest exporter.2 Canadian farmers play a crucial role in supplying food to all. They’ll have to be able meet the growing demand.

    Farmers can’t meet this rising demand on their own. Luckily, the latest tools and technologies that include herbicides such as glyphosate can assist farmers manage weeds precisely and efficiently, leading to an environmentally sustainable and secure food supply.

    What is glyphosate and how can it be used?

    Glyphosate is a popular choice as a non-selectiveand versatile herbicide by land managers and gardeners from all over the world. It has been in use for more than 40 year. It does this by triggering an enzyme needed by plants to grow, and in this instance undesirable herbicides. These enzymes are not present in humans or animals.4 Thus, when used properly, glyphosate is not a danger to either.5

    There are many other uses for glyphosate too. It is also utilized in municipal green spaces to protect wildlife from harmful weeds.6 The glyphosate can also be used on railways for safety and visibility as well as to prevent fires.

    In recent times, glyphosate has received more attention and is increasingly being used in our everyday lives. It’s essential to question the ingredients in our food. But, over 160 international health regulatory organizations including Health Canada agree that glyphosate is safe when used properly.

    Canadians should be able to know what glyphosate is, how it is used and the benefits it brings to food production.

    Glyphosate can be used to cultivate crops.

    Glyphosate-based herbicides can benefit consumers, farmers, and the environment. It is vital to effective weed management as well as food security and sustainability for the environment. Let’s take a look at each of these benefits in greater depth.

    According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, global farmers could lose anywhere between 30-40% and 50 percent of their crops due to weeds, pests and disease. グリホサート It’s a devastating loss, especially for farmers, when you consider that the crops are their livelihood.

    Therefore, it’s no wonder that farmers have come to rely on the tools they can count on year after year. Glyphosate can be a useful tool to control destructive weeds in fields, especially when they’re resistant to glyphosate.

    Weeds against crops The fight of their lives

    Glyphosate gives crops a chance to beat up to 30,000 weed species for space, light and nutrients as well as water.

    Canadians and other consumers around all over the world enjoy the benefits of abundant, cheap food options

    The population is increasing and a significant portion of the agricultural land is in danger due to the degradation of land and desertification.10 This is causing an increase in food security. Canadians can expect to pay less than 55% for food if there are no new farming techniques, like the use or glyphosate.11

    Additionally, it would be increasingly difficult to find the food items that we are accustomed to. Because of plant science However, farmers will be able sustainably grow more of our favourite food items for many years to be.

    Glyphosate can help you control weeds and keep affordable products at the supermarket However, it also helps to keep produce at a reasonable price. Glyphosate can also assist farmers to take care of their biggest asset, which Cherilyn Jolly Nagle from Mossbank, Saskatchewan, says is their land.

    We love eating at tables.

    The growth of farmers is enhanced with the help of crops protection devices (including glyphosate) are used to safeguard crops from pests or diseases.

    42% more grains, including wheat and corn

    72% more fruit

    83 percent more potatoes and more vegetables12

    The benefits are clear. But is it safe to use glyphosate?

    グリホサート To put it simply Yes, and like all pesticides, it should be applied according to the label directions. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) examines the crops for pesticide residue and makes sure that farmers use the pesticide in a safe manner. The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) offers regulatory guidelines, evaluations of submissions to the product and approvals (or rejections) and is one of the strictest evaluation processes around the globe.

    In addition to ensuring that the herbicides that are approved for use are properly used by farmers, the regulatory agencies will also ensure that appropriate and safe use of glyphosate continues by farmers, manufacturers and animals to ensure that no danger unintentionally created to the environment or other animals.

    A combination of technology improvements and precision agriculture allows farmers to make precise applications of glyphosate. This includes the location and amount.

    It is extremely rare that pesticide residues are found in food. But, it can be harmful if it is. グリホサート 安全 The CFIA assures that farmers use herbicides in a safe manner and adhere to established residue limits.16 On the infrequent occasion that it is detected in very low amounts (e.g., 1 part per billion) this is lower than the limit set by the Government of Canada, and is not a safety or health concern since it doesn’t cause any harm to humans or animals.18

    Sustainable farming practices include the use of Glyphosate

    Farmers employ herbicides like glyphosate as part of integrated pest/weed management practices. グリホサート This means they use more herbicides, not just weedicides. Glyphosate helped farmers adopt no-till and conservation practices that have long-term benefits for the soil, environment, and air quality グリホサート .

    – Reduced or eliminated plowing / tilling

    – Reducing CO2 emissions

    Capturing carbon from the soil

    Improve soil health

    – Stopping erosion and water runoff

    “No pesticide regulation authority in the whole world currently thinks that glyphosate poses a danger to human health at the present levels.” — Health Canada (January 11, 2019).

    Making sure Canadian farmers have the equipment, tools and resources they require to meet the increasing food demands of a growing population is more important now than ever before.

    Farmers will continue to keep our food secure and plentiful by observing good agricultural food safety, food safety and pest management methods. Glyphosate is just one of the many tools they employ to ensure that Canadians as well as other people across the world can access nutritious, affordable food in the present as well as in the near future.
