Congressman Mike Flood pushes back on decision to restrict atrazine
Nebraska Congressman Mike Flood is calling on the EPA to reevaluate their stance on Atrazine, saying the Agency did not use science-based evidence when restricting the herbicide.
He released a statement saying it would cost farmers more.
“The new regulations would remove farmers’ ability to use atrazine products in no-till and reduce till application, it could lead to more tillage and increase risk of erosion and soil loss and would add more expenses to farmers during a time of record energy costs.”
Flood joined 94 other members of the House to write a letter to the EPA, asking them to review their decision.
