Urgent action is required here. Public comments are due by July 1 to object to new EPA regulations which are already in place (Increase of glyphosate contamination). You can object and post your comments here. It’s time to make better choices in our own lives!
The new regulation sets the following regulations regarding glyphosate residues on crops:
- It allows forage and hay teff to contain up to 100 ppm glyphosate (over one million times the concentration needed to cause cancer)
- It allows oilseed crops to contain up to 40 ppm glyphosate, which is over 100,000 times the concentration needed to cause cancer.
- It raises the allowable glyphosate contamination level of root crops (like potatoes) from 200 ppb to 6000 ppb
