NCGA Launches Call-to-Action to Protect Atrazine

Fri, 22 Jul 2022 14:09:01 CDT

NCGA Launches Call-to-Action to Protect Atrazine The National Corn Growers Association has launched a call-to-action asking advocates to submit comments to EPA in response to the recent announcement that they are revising the registration for atrazine.



On June 30, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that they are amending the registration of this well-studied herbicide that allows farmers to do more with less. The new level of concern for atrazine will vastly reduce the herbicide's effectiveness, hindering farmers' ability to utilize this critical tool.



“Corn growers know the value of atrazine, and it is time again that we tell EPA the value of this product to our operations,” said Iowa Farmer and NCGA President Chris Edgington. “In 2016, we came together to submit 10,000 comments to the EPA, and we need that same momentum again.”



Comments can be submitted to EPA here, and advocates are encouraged to include information about how the proposed level of concern would impact their individual operations.



The comment period closes on Tuesday, September 6.
