The deadline to submit responses to the PMRA’s proposed phase-out of Clothianidin and Thiamethoxam is fast approaching. To help strengthen the industry position on the proposed ban of these useful and valuable tools, CAAR is urging members to provide their comments to the PMRA before the Nov. 13 deadline.

Common messaging to oppose the proposed ban has been developed by a coalition formed by several industry groups, including CAAR. Click here to view the common messaging.

Mitch Rezansoff, executive director of CAAR, encourages retailers to use this common messaging in their own comments to the PMRA to help enforce the coalition’s position on the benefits and necessity of these effective seed treatments. Comments must be submitted to PMRA’s Publication Section before Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018.

“Achieving consistent messaging through collaboration with all associations and stakeholders is extremely valuable to lobbying efforts,” says Rezansoff in the October issue of The Communicator.
