We offer this example to inspire ambitious vision and goals for a Sustainable Agriculture Strategy consultation by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, open until March 31, 2023.

We DO NOT AGREE that:

… pesticides should, “play an essential role in Canada helping to maintain domestic and global food production …”

Take Action: EPA Challenged for Not Assessing Claimed Pesticide “Benefits,” Opens Public Comment Period

(Beyond Pesticides, January 16, 2024) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has long been criticized for its failure to evaluate the effectiveness (or efficacy) of all the pesticides it registers. A petition, for which there is now an open public comment period (submit comments by January 22, 2024), challenges what advocates call a basic failure of the agency to evaluate the claimed benefits of pesticides. Because of this long-standing situation, those who purchase pesticides do not know that the pesticides they buy will meet expectations for control.

Tell EPA It Must Require Submission of Efficacy Data for All Pesticides   Due to updates to the Regulations website, we are now able to offer a click-and-submit form to the Regulations docket! Please fill out the form below to submit!
