GlyphosateFor years to come the food supply of our country will be assured: that is the reason why farmers use the herbicide glyphosate in order to grow their crops sustainably.
It is not surprising that the number of people living in the world is increasing. The world is projected to have 9.7 billion people by 2050.1 However, the land available for farming in the world is not expanding at the same pace as ours. This causes serious issues for farmers who have to produce enough food of high quality to supply Canadians and people all over the world.

Canada is the fifth largest exporter of food globally.2 As the population grows, Canadian farmers in particular will play a significant part in providing the world with the food it requires. They'll have to be able to cater to increased demands.

By 2050, farmers will have to produce 70% more food items to meet the demands of the growing population. *Source: The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, How to feed the world by 2050

This increasing demand is simply too difficult for farmers to manage by themselves. The latest tools and technologies such as herbicides such as Glyphosate allow farmers to manage weeds effectively and precisely, resulting in an increased sustainable and secure supply of food.

What is the exact meaning of Glyphosate?

Glyphosate is a powerful herbicide that is non-selective and has been used by land managers, gardeners, farmers and others around the globe for more than 40 years. It is a chemical that blocks the activity of enzymes that plants (in this case, undesirable weeds) require to develop. Glyphosate is completely safe for animals and people if used correctly.

Glyphosate can also be used in other applications in addition to agriculture. It is used in municipalities to protect wildlife and the general public from harmful weeds.6 Additionally, it is employed to stop fires and maintain the visibility of railway tracks.

Recently, there has been an increase in attention paid to the use of glyphosate in our everyday lives. Although it's essential to know what goes into our food, it is important to note that over 160 international health regulatory organizations such as Health Canada, agree that the use of glyphosate in a safe manner for humans is possible if carried out in a safe manner.

Canadians should be more aware of glyphosate and the ways it is utilized. This can alleviate their worries. Glyphosate: Why it is being used in the field of agriculture?

The use of herbicides based on glyphosate benefits farmers, consumers as well as the environment. It is essential to efficient weed control, a secure food supply and sustainable environmental sustainability. Let's look more deeply at the various benefits. In the world, farmers lose between 30-40% and 40 percent of their crops due to pests, diseases, as well as weeds.9 According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UNFAO) this losses could increase by a third when crop protection strategies aren't used. It's a tragic loss especially for farmers, when you consider that the crops are their livelihood.

グリホサート It's not surprising that farmers have been relying on their tools year after year. Applying glyphosate to the fieldsparticularly with glyphosate-tolerant crops -- is a proven method to keep weeds that are destructive from taking over their crops.9 As of now the time of writing, no other weed control method offers the same level of effectiveness, both practically and economically.

Crops against. Weeds: The fight of their lives

Glyphosate can give crops a chance to win against up to 30,000 weed species for light, space and nutrients as well as water.

Canadians as well as global consumers benefit from the abundance of and affordable food options.

The population is increasing and half of the land used for food production is in danger because of the degradation of land and desertification.10 This is leading towards increasing food insecurity. Canadians may pay 55% more for food, if they do not have modern agricultural technologies like Glyphosate.

This could make it harder for us to locate the food we enjoy. However, the good news is that farmers can continue to produce our most loved staple foods thanks to the science behind plant breeding.

Glyphosate doesn't just help manage weeds and ensure that you can afford produce at the grocery store however. Glyphosate can also assist farmers to take care of their most valuable asset that which Cherilyn Jolly Nagle from Mossbank, Saskatchewan, says is their land.

Keep foods that we love on the table

Farmers can prosper when crop protection tools like glyphosate are used to protect their crops from diseases and pests.

42% more grains, similar to corn and wheat

72% more fruit

83% more vegetables and potatoes12

The benefits are clear. Is glyphosate safe to use?

Simply put, yes--and like all pesticides, it should be used in accordance with guidelines on the label. グリホサート Canada's glyphosate use regulation is overseen by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The agency checks crops for residues of pesticides to ensure farmers use it in a safe manner. It also has the Pest Management Regulation Agency (PMRA) which offers guidelines, evaluations of submissions to the product and rejections or approvals. They have one of the most comprehensive evaluation processes anywhere in the world.

In addition, to making sure that the herbicides that are approved for use are properly used by farmers, regulators will also ensure that safe and proper use of glyphosate is maintained by manufacturers, farmers and animals to ensure that no unintended danger is created to the natural environment or animals.

The use of precision technology and agriculture has enabled farmers to take greater control over the use of glyphosate. They can also determine exactly where and how the glyphosate is used.

In the case of pesticide residues, it's uncommon for glyphosate to be detected on food and, if it is detected at levels that are too low, to cause harm. CFIA makes sure that farmers apply herbicides in a safe manner and adhere to the established limits for residue16. This is extremely rare and it does not pose a risk to human or animal health17

Glyphosate use as part of sustainable agriculture practices

Farmers utilize herbicides like Glyphosate as part of integrated pest/weed control practices. In other words, they employ more than herbicides for controlling plants. Glyphosate permits farmers to use conservation tillage and no-till methods which have long-term benefits to soil, air and the environmental.

- Elimination or reduction of plowing/tilling of land

Reduced CO2 emissions

Capturing carbon inside the soil

Improve soil health

- Reducing runoff , and limiting erosion13

"No pesticide regulatory authority around the globe currently assesses the glyphosate chemical a cancer risk to humans at the present levels to which they're exposed." -- Health Canada, January 11, 2019.

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Now is a better time than any other for Canadian farmers to be equipped with the equipment, tools, and support needed to meet growing food supply needs.

The best agricultural, food safety and insect control methods will ensure that farmers have food safe and plentiful. And glyphosate is just one of many tools they'll use to ensure Canadians, and people around the world, have access to nutritious and affordable food--now and for the years to come.
