U.S. EPA Announces Decision on Atrazine and Simazine Registration

On September 22nd, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced an interim decision on proposed changes to the labels for Atrazine and Simazine. These herbicides are used for pre-emergence and early post-emergence control of many grassy and broadleaf weed species in warm-season grasses. While there were mandatory reductions in use rates for residential turf, there were little to no changes for atrazine or simazine use in sod production.
