Atrazine: Creating Jobs
Creating Jobs and Boosting the U.S. Economy
New research has shown that up to 85,000 American jobs depend on atrazine.
In fact, this one herbicide boosts U.S. economic growth by as much as $9 billion every year.
Higher yields = Lower prices, more jobs, greater economic growth
The benefits are nationwide, but atrazine is particularly important to our farm economy. For many family farms, atrazine represents the margin between remaining in business and going bust.
There simply is no replacement – and with weed resistance becoming an increasing problem for other herbicides, atrazine is needed now more than ever.
