Voice your opinion to EPA over changes to atrazine


Nebraska Corn is asking farmers across the Midwest to submit comments to the EPA about a proposed change to atrazine.

Nebraska Corn Growers Association Chairman, Andy Jobman told Brownfield Ag News, “If this proposal would go through, it would really throw a wrench in our ability to use modern-day herbicides to control weeds. We’d probably be looking at more tillage that would need to be done, which hampers our conservation and sustainability efforts.”

In June, the EPA proposed a rule that would lower the level of concern to 3.4 parts per billion. Growers are concerned the proposed change would hinder their abilities to control weeds using herbicides.
