The Florida Farm Bureau Federation is urging Florida growers to submit comments to the Environmental Protection Agency requesting the agency reevaluate its proposed Reregistration Eligibility Decisions for several important soil fumigants. The EPA has extended the comment period through Oct. 30.

FFBF Agricultural Policy Division assistant director Joshua Craft talks about why this is so important and how growers can go about making comments.

Comments can be made on-line by going to the July 16 Federal Register.
