Ag Industry Members Encouraged to Comment on Prohibition of Glyphosate-Based Products
On August 5, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors will consider the prohibition of glyphosate-based products at their board hearing. Members of the agricultural industry are encouraged to submit a comment concerning this potential prohibition (Agenda item #13).
Glyphosate-based products have a long history of safe use and have been extensively tested. California, which has strict pesticide regulations and requirements, has not banned statewide use of glyphosate-based products. For those interested in learning more about glyphosate’s uses and the history of research concerning its safety, the San Diego Farm Bureau has put together data concerning the products and talking points that may be beneficial to those interested in commenting on the agenda item.
