Registrants of the herbicides atrazine and simazine are voluntarily requesting the cancellation of dozens of uses, but the companies are protecting applications for row crops.

The companies' requests would end the use of atrazine "in or on roadsides; Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) land; conifers, including Christmas tree plantings; timber and forestry; and miscanthus and other perennial bioenergy crops," according to an EPA notice.

The requests also would cancel the use of simazine in or on shelterbelts and all forestry uses except for Christmas tree plantings.

The public will have 30 days to comment on the proposal.
