Pest Control



Pest control measures must conform to AFS Combinable Crops Standards 6.5, 6.7, 6.15 7.0 and 7.2. On units where livestock are also kept the pest control plan must extend to cover the livestock enterprise. Consideration should be given to the rodent baits used on sites where rapeseed (canola) processing is undertaken. Evidence suggests that levels of Vitamin K in this oilseed may act as an antidote to the anticoagulants used in many bait preparations.
