Agricultural Stakeholders Tell EPA Why They Need Chlorpyrifos Uses Retained

11/01/2011 -

Continued access to the insecticide chlorpyrifos is important for successful production of a wide range of U.S. crops, according to public comments submitted by agricultural stakeholders on a preliminary EPA chlorpyrifos regulatory assessment released during July of 2011. Read the summary of stakeholder comments and links to submitted information.

Growers clearly need a trusted, well-established product to protect a wide range of crops from a diverse spectrum of damaging pests. As a highly effective, well-studied crop protection product with regulatory authorizations in most countries for use on most crops, chlorpyrifos meets that pressing need. Dow AgroSciences supports chlorpyrifos for use in U.S. agriculture and will continue to work with EPA to address requirements for high-quality health, safety and environmental data to meet the needs of the Agency’s ongoing regulatory review process.
