Growers, Agribusiness Invited to Share Herbicide Concerns with EPA

Growers, Agribusiness Invited to Share Herbicide Concerns with EPA July 25, 2018

Growers, crop consultants, agricultural professionals and members of the public interested in speaking with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are invited to attend an open stakeholder meeting 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, August 1 on East Campus of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Greg Kruger, weed science and application technology specialist at the university’s West Central Research and Extension Center in North Platte, is hosting the EPA meeting. According to Kruger, the purpose of the meeting is to allow interested stakeholders to share views with the EPA on herbicide registrations. 

“The session is really meant for the EPA to listen to the concerns and comments from the industry as it relates to herbicides,” Kruger said. “In particular, we would like to cover dicamba and atrazine.” 

The meeting will be held at the Nebraska East Union Prairie Suite. Space is limited. To RSVP, visit https://go.unl.edu/epa-rsvp

If you have questions about the meeting, contact Kruger at 308-696-6715 or gkruger2@unl.edu
