Nearly five million acres of crops, trees and backyard gardens have been harmed in the past three years by Monsanto's pesticide dicamba. This weed-killer easily drifts from spray sites, causing devastating collateral damage to non-target plants.

Greater restrictions for dicamba are needed โ€” but of course Monsanto has other plans. The company has asked the Environmental Protection Agency to approve the use of dicamba on all U.S. cornfields โ€” an expansion that could see the pesticide sprayed on an additional 80 million acres of farmland.

If approved, this plan will cause environmental devastation beyond measure. Milkweed, flowers and other plants exposed to the airborne poison don't stand a chance. And that harms pollinators, including monarch butterflies and our amazing diversity of native bees.

Using the form on this page, tell the EPA you expect it to do its job of protecting the environment by denying Monsanto's dangerous request.
