Premier Brad Wall has kicked out a founding member of his governing Saskatchewan Party after a review found the member of the legislature tried to influence potential investors while he was on a trip to China.

Bill Boyd was involved with a company that went to China to attract investors for irrigation projects on Saskatchewan farmland.

Boyd has said he went on the trip as a farmer and private businessman, not as a representative of the government.

But the conflict of interest commissioner says Boyd was identified on the trip as a minister of the economy and that his presentation featured the government's logo on nearly every slide.

The Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association is reminding farmers to properly declare the commodity they're delivering in order to protect Canada's domestic and export markets.

Farmers are encouraged to refer to the Keep It Clean online resources and Cereal Canada's Keep It Clean Cereals Campaign.

If applying glyphosate at the pre-harvest timing, farmers are advised to strictly follow label instructions.

Producers are also being encouraged to talk with their grain buyers to know the requirements for market acceptance and to obtain details for the Declaration of Eligibility For Delivery form.
