Take Action to Support Continued Atrazine Use

Pesticide products like atrazine help ag retailers and their farmer customers provide climate solutions while promoting sustainable agricultural practices that result in a safe, secure, and affordable food supply for American consumers.
But on Nov. 5, 2020, EPA published its draft biological evaluation (BE) of atrazine, simazine and propazine and inexplicably found that atrazine is likely to adversely impact nearly all species and critical habitats in the US, which could impact future availability of atrazine in the marketplace.
IFCA is calling on you to submit comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in support of the continued use of atrazine and similar pesticide products such as simazine and propazine. The deadline to submit comments is Friday, Feb. 19, 2021.
