In the summer of 2016, the EPA released its ecological risk assessment for atrazine. Atrazine is a safe and effective crop management tool. Farming without it could cost corn farmers up to $59 per acre. That’s a cost most farmers cannot afford – and that’s why it’s so important that the EPA hear directly from farmers like you.


Listen to NCGA Director of Public Policy, Ethan Mathews, discuss the EPA’s Ecological Risk Assessment ruling on atrazine.

Thank you for sending thousands of messages to the EPA supporting atrazine. We expect further EPA rulemaking on atrazine in the coming months.
