Secretary Perdue Statement on Vietnam's Ban on the Importation of Glyphosate

Secretary Perdue Statement on Vietnam's Ban on the Importation of Glyphosate
   

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue issued the following statement in response to the announcement by Vietnam's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) that Vietnam will ban the importation of glyphosate:

"We are disappointed in Vietnam's decision to ban glyphosate, a move that will have devastating impacts on global agricultural production. As I've often said, if we're going to feed 10 billion people by 2050, farmers worldwide need all the tools and technologies at our disposal.

"On numerous occasions, USDA has shared scientific studies with MARD from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other internationally recognized regulatory bodies concluding that glyphosate is unlikely to pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans. This ban flies on the face of that scientific evidence. Furthermore, Vietnam has sidestepped its obligation to notify this regulatory change to the World Trade Organization.

"Vietnam also needs to look at the potential ramifications for its own farmers. In addition to the immediate effect of slowing the development of Vietnamese agricultural production, there's the very real risk that Vietnam's farmers will turn to unregulated, illegal chemical products in place of glyphosate."
