Congratulations to Tanner Stroup (Daviess Co.) and Kevin Hayden (Carlisle Co.) for achieving 300+ yields in this year’s contest.
Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles submitted comments this week on behalf of more than 75,000 Kentucky farm families he represents to Michael S. Regan, head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), concerning the herbicide atrazine.
When EPA announced its June 30 proposed rule on atrazine, farmers took immediate notice of EPA’s ultra-low level for atrazine. After examining the extensive documentation posted to the docket, the scenario has gone from bad to worse.
Farmers and farm organizations involved in the Triazine Network are actively involved in an effort to fight a potential unprecedented EPA action that would have serious impacts for the use of atrazine for growers.
