Tell USDA We Won't Stand for GMO Herbicide-Resistant Cotton!

Monsanto has petitioned APHIS, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the USDA, to freely use and distribute cotton genetically engineered for tolerance to the herbicides dicamba and glufosinate. They are asking for public comments to help them identify potential environmental and interrelated economic issues and impacts. In the U.S. and Latin America, these chemicals are widely used as “super herbicides” for genetically modified crops, mainly on rapeseed, maize, soy bean, cotton, rice and sugar beets.

These new herbicide-resistant crops will be planted alongside conventional and organic crops. This increases the potential for cross-contamination, and for the spillover of toxic herbicides into the groundwater and neighboring farms.

Please write to USDA and protest this plan.
