US EPA to review new studies on atrazine

The US EPA is to carry out a one-year review of the potential effects of the herbicide, atrazine, on human health. The Agency plans to examine data from animal laboratory and human epidemiology studies that have become available since it decided to re-register atrazine in 2003 ( Agrow No 436, p 14). In August, a senior EPA official declared that the Agency would take a “hard look” at atrazine, following calls from an environmentalist group for the herbicide to be phased out ( Agrow No 575, p 19).
