Increasing numbers of farmers in Canada are adoping herbicide-tolerant (HT) soybeans and environmentally friendly no-till practices. A study by the George Morris Centre, surveying 352 Ontario soybean growers on their cropping practices, found that 30% of Ontario's soybean acreage was planted to HT seed in 2001. The report says that the new technology makes "good economic and environmental sense," because producers report making 1.7 fewer field passes than they did three years ago.
