Grain Millers Yorkton Stops Accepting Oats Treated With Lambda-Cyhalothrin

Ottawa’s decision to ban the use of lambda-cyhalothrin insecticides on any crops destined for feed use has now led at least one Canadian miller to prohibit any deliveries of oats treated with the chemical.

Grain Millers, whose Canadian operations include its oat mill at Yorkton, said in a memo yesterday (Tue) to growers that the Canadian National Millers Association has asked all member businesses to advise growers of their lambda-cy policies.

Grain Millers says the company is being forced to prohibit the use of lambda-cyhalothrin on any oats being sold to Grain Millers.

From now on, prior to delivering any oats in the future, growers will be required to sign a delivery affidavit which will include a statement to that effect.
