Ag groups worry EPA strategies for herbicides could limit weed control

Some ag groups are worried an upcoming EPA action plan could limit herbicide options for U.S. farmers.

The Agency is set to release the plan early next year. It is geared toward helping them comply with the Endangered Species Act.

EPA Agriculture Advisor Rod Snyder tells Brownfield Ag News the plan will not include final agency actions. Instead, it will focus on strategies only.

The American Soybean Board says they are worried the process will put farmers in a bind and limit their weed control options.
