Growers from Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Ohio and Nebraska left their combines briefly last week to speak with executives from Syngenta Crop Protection about the importance of atrazine to their farming operations. A roundtable meeting was held at the National Corn Growers Association office in Chesterfield, Mo., followed by an informal meeting at the Keith Witt farm in nearby Warrenton, Mo.

Although atrazine was successfully re-registered by EPA in 2006, recent attacks by environmental activists including the Natural Resources Defense Council have brought the issue to the forefront. Trial attorneys also continue their efforts for legal action against the makers of atrazine.
