The Benefits of Atrazine: Cost Efficient

Atrazine increases crop yield

U.S. consumers benefit by up to $4.8 billion annually due to decreased producer costs, increased yield, and reduced soil erosion.

  • In 2004, weeds cost U.S. agriculture an estimated $20 billion, and those costs continue to rise.
  • Atrazine saves U.S. consumers $3.6 to $4.4 billion each year, by decreasing input costs and increasing the value of crop rotations.
