Syngenta responds to The New Yorker story

[ 0 ] February 6, 2014 |

Our goal has always been to communicate clearly and unambiguously that atrazine is a well-tested, safe, and beneficial product that is critical to American agriculture and the nation’s economy. We will continue to defend atrazine by effectively presenting the facts about this trusted herbicide and urging others to do so as well. Atrazine’s environmental and economic benefits have been well-documented by scientists and farmers over the 50 years it has been used safely across the world.

It’s unfortunate and surprising that The New Yorker story criticizes a requirement that regulatory decisions “rely on studies that meet high standards for ‘quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity.’” We support sound science and hope that U.S. policy continues to be based on well-tested, solid research. That’s why we will continue to review atrazine studies by Syngenta scientists and others to ensure that misinformation about our product is dispelled.
