Atrazine’s effectiveness and safety is well documented throughout the United States
and around the world, with nearly 7,000 scientific studies conducted on the product.
For more than half a century, atrazine has been a mainstay of corn, sorghum and
sugar cane farmers for its proven control of a broad range of destructive weeds.
Each year, it supports up to 85,000 American jobs, while saving U.S. consumers up
to $4.8 billion due to decreased input costs and increased production.
Atrazine plays a significant role in feeding the world, but it also protects the
environment and critical wildlife habitats by reducing up to 85 million tons of
soil erosion each year by encouraging conservation tillage and no-fill farming.
The proof is in the numbers: Atrazine is effective, safe, and integral to agriculture’s
success in the United States and worldwide. There is no substitute.
