Because of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION, an Ontario farmer can do weed control on his field, but not on his lawn.
In jurisdictions where pest control products are PROHIBITED in the Urban Landscape, yards are POLLUTED WITH WEEDS, and are INFESTING nearby agricultural land.
In the Agriculture Industry, DANDELION INFESTATIONS FROM URBAN NEIGHBOURS can be a real problem, and growers end up SPRAYING A LOT MORE OFTEN than they would have had the weeds been controlled in the first place.
There is A LOT OF GOOD SCIENCE to support measures for the safety of applicants and proper use of weed control products.
