The NGO, or non-government organization petition, failed to fall in line with scientific research, according to agriculture groups. CropLife America says EPA’s decision to deny the chlorpyrifos petition is a hopeful indication that EPA is recommitting to established requirements and guidelines relating to transparency, public process, and scientific integrity. The crop protection industry is “encouraged by EPA’s detailed rationale set forth in the denial order and supports EPA’s commitment to a thorough registration review of chlorpyrifos.” An official with the Department of Agriculture’s Office of Pest Management Policy said: “This is a welcome decision grounded in evidence and science.”National Corn Growers President Wesley Spurlock said the organization was pleased that the EPA will return to the standard pesticides review process as called for under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, adding “the overwhelming scientific consensus is that chlorpyrifos is safe for use by farmers, and we are confident that the pesticide review process will reaffirm this.”Source: NAFB News Service Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePerdue Nomination Poised for Full Senate Vote Hoosier Ag Today RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 Facebook Twitter Minor Changes in June WASDE Report Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 STAY CONNECTED5,545FansLike3,961FollowersFollow187SubscribersSubscribelast_img
