Re: Environmental Registry of Ontario (ERO) Posting 019-0601
Dear Minister Yurek,
The Ontario Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association (OFVGA) wishes to express its full support of the proposal to update Ontario’s pesticides regulation as indicated under the Environmental Registry of Ontario (ERO) posting 019-0601. Removal of the duplicative process for pesticide classification in Ontario will enable timely access for farmers to the newest crop protection tools without compromising on protection of human health or the environment.
