The Environmental Protection Agency is facing more lawsuits over herbicides, including a challenge from grower groups over new dicamba restrictions and a lawsuit from environmental groups over atrazine.
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued interim registration decisions for atrazine, simazine and propazine that would allow the herbicides to continue to be used on corn and other crops with some added restrictions.
Supporters and detractors of atrazine are clashing over EPA’s recently proposed interim registration decision, which would impose new label language to reduce spray drift but also would increase the concentration of the herbicide allowed in watersheds before corrective action is required.
Glyphosate is one of 28 pesticide product lines that President Trump is threatening to hit with tariffs of up to 25% starting next month. The crop protection industry is asking for exclusions and warning that costs could rise for manufacturers and farmers.
