The unprecedented push back against Clever® Quinclorac that began mid-June of 2015 has yet to be fully resolved. To date we have not received a satisfactorily fact based answer as to why Clever® was singled out when many of the other major pesticides used on Canola face similar issues when it comes to incomplete MRLs in some major market (see list here). Whatever the real reason for this sustained attack against our product, we find ourselves advocating on behalf of the Canadian Canola producers who desperately need quinclorac technology to deal with their growing cleaver infestations.
The scope of the misinformation and half-truths that have been spread about quinclorac and MRLs over the past year has made it difficult for producers to sort out fact from fiction. We hope to clarify the issue by gathering our observations and supporting evidence into one easily accessible webpage.
