U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)

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.

How this will help

The USDA has the power to stop Dow's plan to push for the widespread use of herbicide-resistant seeds and the rampant use of toxic 2, 4-D herbicide, a main ingredient in the infamous "Agent Orange."
