I was hoping someone might have some insight to add- we would like to move to the country but in our area of canada, most country properties are bordered by corn fields. After searching the internet, have found the "of course it's safe" answer from farm organizations and "not in a million years" from the other end of the spectrum. Does anyone have any insights? I am told by the local farming community that in our area, a general rule of thumb is roundup applied in the spring right into the soil at seeding time and that's generally it for pesticide use.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated!
