NCGA Calls on Farmers to Contact EPA Regarding Atrazine

Wed, 28 Sep 2022 09:16:46 CDT

NCGA Calls on Farmers to Contact EPA Regarding Atrazine The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is encouraging growers to join its call-to-action and submit comments to the EPA on the important role atrazine, a popular herbicide, plays in their work.


The call-to-action was launched over the summer as EPA began revising its registration for atrazine. EPA is proposing a level of concern for atrazine at 3.4 parts per billion, down from the current level of 15 parts per billion.


The move would significantly impair the effective use of atrazine on farms, according to NCGA.


“Atrazine allows corn growers to experience higher yields using less land with fewer inputs, which is good for the environment and saves growers money,” said Brooke S. Appleton, vice president of public policy at the National Corn Growers Association. “Reducing the effectiveness of this important herbicide will hinder the work of farmers and turn the clock back on our conservation efforts.”


Since the organization launched the call to action on July 20, more than 3,000 growers have taken action through NCGA’s website. The response on this issue needs to reflect its importance to our industry, according to NCGA leadership.


EPA’s open comment period closes on October 7. You can join NCGA’s effort by clicking here.
