Canadian farmers and cereal crop associations want to speak to Kellogg’s.
The maker of iconic cereal brands like Mini-Wheats and Froot Loops has decided to ban pre-harvest glyphosate in its supply chain for wheat and oats.
Farmers and farm groups want to tell Kellogg’s why farmers use glyphosate prior to harvest and how the herbicide is part of a farming system that increases carbon sequestration, reduces soil erosion and improves soil health.
“That’s really the critical point. To have the dialogue with our customers on how glyphosate is used…. And have the dialogue on the sustainability story of modern Canadian agriculture, which depends upon modern agriculture tools,” said Cam Dahl, president of Cereals Canada.
