Surly someone has done trials to see if you actually can get above MRLís spraying to early?
Oh I get it. She has a strong slant or bias, but her sources and references are real. I guarantee we are not getting the whole story from the "industry". The big dawgs are only concerned about bottom line and I can't blame them. If you and I are not looking at both sides of the argument we can be duped pretty easily. I hope the fear mongering among the dirty hippies about Roundup is wrong, but i'm not sure...

“We know that Canadian durum wheat is excellent for pasta production, but unfortunately some Italian farm organizations have made a very tough campaign against it over the past years,” said Luigi Cristiano Laurenza, pasta secretary at the Italian Association of Confectionery and Pasta Industries.

“They have convinced our consumers here that Canadian durum wheat is not a safe product to consume because of the presence of glyphosate. Unfortunately, our pasta makers are buying less durum wheat from Canada as a result.”

Since February, all dried pasta sold in Italy must have a label stating the origin of its durum wheat. The country-of-origin labelling regulation followed protests by Italian durum growers in a campaign organized by Italy’s biggest farm organization Coldiretti.

The influential farm group, known for its mass demonstrations with farmers and supporters decked out in its trademark yellow and green, says labelling is needed because Canadian farmers make “intensive use of glyphosate… in the pre-harvest phase.”

For pasta makers, Canadian durum is eccellente
But there are never more than minute traces of the herbicide — even when it is used as a desiccant — in any Canadian grain exports, said a research scientist with the Canadian Grain Commission’s Grain Research Laboratory. The same is also true of mycotoxins such as deoxynivalenol and Ochratoxin A, which Coldiretti also claims ‘contaminate’ Canadian durum, said Sheryl Tittlemier

Unfortunately, perception can affect markets.

There is no winning the fight. Better to just remove the obstacle.

When flax got targeted with triffid, it slipped through because it such a small unknown crop. Keeping quiet is sometimes a better strategy.

Durum is a different animal.

So what would you like to do on a discussion forum?



There is no argument, make sure when you spray wheat, its less then 30% moisture.

IMO, the only difference between a discussion and an argument is the way in which people share opposing views. Some people like to discuss, others like to argue. It's all in the delivery.

Why would you harvest wheat at 30% moisture? OMG that would have to go straight into a batch dryer and would eat up any profit and most likely give a negative return

Spray it at <30% moisture, not harvest it at 30% moisture.

You would be an absolute retard to spray your 30% wheat because you could harvest in a day or two.

I'm out, this shouldn't even be debated, it should be common sence!
He said he harvests at 30% moisture
