American agriculture needs new technology to address the weed control challenges on our farms for the next growing season. You now have the opportunity to advocate for modern agriculture and urge the USDA and EPA to take action.

Over the last two decades, the reliance on a single herbicide, glyphosate, has resulted in glyphosate-resistant weeds. These weeds reduce yields and cause significant production challenges.

Herbicide-tolerant cropping systems also provide numerous agronomic, producer and environmental benefits to U.S. farmers and consumers.

The Enlist™ Weed Control System, when approved, will provide a critical tool to meet the weed control challenges.

It’s very important that the voice of the farmer is heard as biotech opponents strive to block Enlist and other new technologies that farmers need most. Express your voice to USDA and EPA today in support for new weed control technology at www.advancefarming.com/petition.htm.
