2,4-D Ban Request Denied

The Natural Resources Defense Council’s request to ban 2,4-D was denied by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.  Jim Gray, executive director of the Industry Task Force II on 2,4-D research data said, “This has been one of the most widely used and successful herbicides in history and growers along with other users around the U.S. and the world can continue to use it with confidence.”

2,4-D is one of the top selling pesticides in the United States and is widely used in residential, commercial, and agriculture.
