USCC Position Statement on Persistent Herbicides

The US Composting Council calls on chemical manufacturers to withdraw herbicides known to persist in soil and compost with phytotoxic plant effects and to take responsibility for the damage these persistent herbicides cause, and on the US EPA and state agencies to take immediate and decisive action to prevent further environmental and financial damage.
