New Website Offers News and Information on Atrazine by the Farmers Who Have Used it for Generations

Farmers launch www.AGSense.org to fight false claims and shoddy science against atrazine use

A group of farmers who raise corn, sorghum and other crops throughout the country have launched a new website, www.AGSense.org, to bring some common sense and straight talk to the debate about atrazine.

“Atrazine is important to keeping our food supply plentiful and affordable, and is highly effective with a remarkable track record of success—and safety—that stretches back for decades,” said Jere White, executive director of the Kansas Corn Growers Association and chairman of the Triazine Network, the group of farmers behind the new Web site.

“EPA conducted a special review of atrazine in 1994 and gave it full approval in 2006, so activists who are suddenly labeling it with false claims are irresponsible, at best, and misleading, at worst,” White said.

Farmers, ranchers and the people who consume their products can find information on AGSense.org about the various crops atrazine is used for, why exactly it is important for land conservation, its long history of scrutiny and approval by regulators all over the world, and highlights from the latest online content that tells the story of this critical tool – and the campaign against it – from across the Web.

“If AGSense.org helps just one person learn something about atrazine that he or she didn’t know before, if it helps bring just a little bit of common sense to this critical agricultural tool, it will have been worth creating,” said White. “We hope people find it useful as we fight to keep our access to atrazine alive.”
