Richardson Milling says:
Richardson Milling, the largest oat miller in North America, has no intention of changing its policies on glyphosate. In fact, they recently said that:
IT’S OK FOR FARMERS TO SPRAY ROUNDUP ON THEIR CROPS BEFORE HARVEST IN ORDER TO GET THE CROP TO DRY UNIFORMLY.
Tracey Shelton, director of corporate communications with Richardson International, said the company would continue to buy oats that have been desiccated with glyphosate. The company operates oat milling and processing plants in Portage la Prairie, Man., Martensville, Sask., Barrhead, Alta., and South Sioux City, Nebraska.
“Unless something drastically changes, if the regulations are changed, we will continue to follow (established) practices…. At Richardson we make science-based decisions…. They (pesticides) are only registered if the level of exposure to Canadians doesn’t cause any harmful effects.”
