New standards for storing and applying seed treatments are set to take effect across Canada in 2017.
The new audit-based accreditation system was developed by CropLife Canada and its members “to provide uniform environmental, health and safety practices” at facilities where seed treatments are applied. If a business does not go through the accreditation process, it will lose access to designated seed treatment products.
Things have changed quickly in society, maybe faster than ever.
For example, I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, science was definitely not cool. One of my contemporaries (age-wise), a top-notch, internationally respected environmental toxicologist, reiterated that for me recently during a discussion about occupational choices. “I didn’t become a scientist because I as cool,” she said. “Actually, I was a nerd. A lot of people who are scientists now started out as nerds.”
