The EPA is trying to undermine farmers' ability to earn a living by attacking both Atrazine and the Renewable Fuel Standard. The EPA is using science that they have found to be flawed to try and limit the use of Atrazine. They are also not following the law by trying to reduce the amount of ethanol that is required to be blended into the fuel supply. Send a message to EPA to tell them about how important Atrazine and the RFS are to your operation.
