CU comments to EPA not to approve use of a new herbicide combination–2,4-D/glyphosate

 

Consumers Union urges you not to register a double herbicide mix of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and glyphosate (“Enlist DuoTM”), which would be used in conjunction with crops that have been genetically engineered to resist these herbicides.

Consumers Union are concerned that the risks to public health, fruit and vegetable growers and the environment far outweigh the short-term benefits to row crop growers of controlling weeds with 2,4-D.
