Tell USDA: Reject “Agent Orange” GMO Corn and Soybean Seeds

To be delivered to U.S Department of Agriculture

Petition Statement

The USDA should NOT approve Dow AgroScience’s GMO herbicide-resistant corn and soybean seeds.

There are currently 1,285 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Approval of Dow's herbicide-resistant corn and soybean seeds will drive a massive increase in use of the toxic and drift-prone 2,4-D herbicide, a main ingredient in "Agent Orange." This toxic chemical causes severe damage to vulnerable crops, drives farms out of business, harming rural families’ health, and contributing to even more herbicide-resistant superweeds.
