US EPA seeks comment on frog petition

The US EPA is seeking public comment on a petition by the conservationist group, Save the Frogs, seeking a ban on the herbicide, atrazine. The group sent a petition to the Agency in May bearing over 10,000 signatures. It points to “abundant scientific evidence” from laboratories worldwide showing potential damaging effects to human and environmental health. The EPA is carrying out a review of studies on atrazine that have become available since it decided to re-register the herbicide in 2003 ( Agrow No 578, p 16). It is seeking comments on the Save the Frogs petition by November 14th.
