Last Friday, National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) sent a letter to the U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy requesting the Agency take immediate corrective actions relating to the premature posting of EPA’s preliminary report on the ecological risk assessment of atrazine.   
 
NASDA expressed significant concerns with: (1) the Agency’s mishandling of this information; (2) the substantive scientific shortcomings included in the preliminary risk assessment; and (3) the implications EPA’s actions, or lack thereof, may have on U.S. agricultural producers. 
 
NASDA is requesting EPA’s timely response to these concerns before the Agency takes any further actions with its registration review, and NASDA stands ready to assist EPA in ensuring our growers have access to a broad range of technologies and crop protection tools, reviewed and approved in scientifically-sound and transparent manner, needed to continue to produce our nation’s food, fiber, and fuel.
