The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its ecological risk assessment on the pesticide atrazine.
The EPA has chosen to base the ecological risk assessment for atrazine on studies their own Science Advisory Panel deemed flawed just four years ago! This undermines public confidence in the review process and goes against the mission of using the best available science.
Farming without atrazine could cost corn farmers up to $59 per acre, according to a 2012 study by the University of Chicago. That is a cost many farmers can not afford, and it would have ripple effects across the entire food and agriculture sector.
Tell the EPA to base their decision on sound science today!
