Last year, thanks to incredible public outcry, cancer-causing methyl iodide was taken off the market. But other fumigant pesticides are still in wide use, and they are among the most toxic and difficult-to-control chemicals in farming.
EPA is currently reviewing the rules for how drift-prone fumigants are used. Before the comment period closes on November 25, join us in urging the agency to develop a plan to help farmers transition away from fumigants by 2020. And in the meantime, put better protections in place!
Thanks for speaking up! There are only a few days left to get this message across.
