ARA Signed a Coalition Letter to EPA on Chlorpyrifos PID
Mar 06 2021
ARA joined a coalition of more than 30 organizations to send a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Pesticide Programs in support of the re-registration of chlorpyrifos for its currently registered uses and in strong opposition of cancelling the registration.
"Failing to renew the registration of chlorpyrifos could lead to catastrophic yield losses for many of the growers we represent or our customers, as often inadequate or no viable insect management alternatives to chlorpyrifos exist," the letter says.
