Tell the EPA: Ban dangerous, drifting dicamba

EPA Commissioner Michael Regan,

Your agency set new rules in 2020 to make sure the toxic herbicide dicamba would stay where it was sprayed instead of drifting through our farms and communities -- but it didn't work. The incidence of drift and off-target damage from drifting dicamba is still far too high.

Dicamba has the power to destroy every plant besides the soybeans and cotton specially modified to resist it -- so it's unacceptable that this chemical continues to be used when it can remain in the air for up to 72 hours after it's sprayed. The weed killer is drifting into other farms, natural areas and our communities. It's putting our health at risk.

I strongly urge you to ban dicamba unless and until it is proven safe.
