Year: 2018

Number: 31-18M

Department: Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Midterm: Yes

WHEREAS prohibited, noxious and nuisance weeds are a very big concern for farmers and RMs;

WHEREAS many RMs spend a lot of money each year to control the spread of these weeds by hiring weed inspectors and spraying; and

WHEREAS there are issues with these weeds being more prevalent on organic farmland;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to ensure that organic certification bodies do not allow farmers certified as organic to have prohibited, noxious and nuisance weeds to growing on their land.
