The letter highlighted the urgent need for new modes of action to tackle resistant weeds on farms across the country. The groups cited the already-exhaustive review undertaken by both USDA and EPA on the Enlist family of products. The letter stated “these delays are necessitating more intense weed control practices that complicate environmental management.” The groups also took issue with EPA’s reference to additional and new data in its decision to reevaluate Enlist Duo.The American Soybean Association was joined on the letter by the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council and the National Farmers Union.
