Atrazine to be Banned?

Huh. Just noticed on the Environmental News Network: The EPA will weigh a ban on Atrazine. Atrazine is an herbicide (weed killer) that is widely used in Kansas, and is responsible for a number of water bodies making it onto the EPA’s “impaired waters” list I wrote about here. The fight over Atrazine has been going on for at least a decade or longer, and has been prominent at times in Kansas. Farmers like it. Environmentalists hate it. We’ll see what the EPA does.
