Dicamba is an herbicide that is notorious for getting picked up by the wind, drifting miles from the intended target – even days after it’s sprayed. When these dangerous chemicals land, they can wipe out crops on neighboring farms and create toxic impacts for surrounding communities.

Dicamba has been linked to several types of cancer, harm to wildlife and serious damage to any crops that aren’t engineered to be dicamba-resistant.

That’s a bad deal for our health, the environment, and our nation’s farmers. And that’s why we’ve launched a campaign calling on the EPA to Ban Destructive Dicamba. Learn more here.
