The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has denied a petition from the Center for Biological Diversity that asked the EPA to amend the “treated article exemption” to make clear it does not apply to seeds treated with systemic pesticides.
This is a success for Western Growers; last month, WG joined more than 30 other agricultural organizations in asking the EPA to reject the petition.
