Approval of Dow's herbicide-resistant corn and soybean seeds will drive a massive increase in use of the toxic and drift-prone 2,4-D herbicide, a main ingredient in "Agent Orange." This toxic chemical causes severe damage to vulnerable crops, drives farms out of business, harming rural families’ health, and contributing to even more herbicide-resistant superweeds. The USDA should NOT approve Dow AgroScience’s GMO corn and soybean seeds.
