The National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) today thanked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for following the science demonstrating the safety of glyphosate and neonicotinoids. Safety is a priority for all corn growers. All products in use today have been tested by EPA, and many of which have been used for decades with no findings of harmful effects to human health or the environment when used properly. Each product is thoroughly reviewed by the EPA every 15 years to ensure continued safety and account for any new information or data. The availability of safe products is critically important and allows farmers to continually improve the sustainability of their operations, while supplying a safe, secure supply of food for a growing population.
U.S. Corn farmers are committed to continuous improvement in the production of corn, a versatile crop providing abundant high-quality food, feed, renewable energy, biobased products, and ecosystem services.
Corn ethanol is critical for a sustainable, clean energy future.
