DuPont's Imprelis herbicide risks: @MotherEarthNews <how mad would u b if the neighbor's lawn service killed ur trees?
Despite ample evidence that these deadly herbicides are damaging fields and gardens, and despite our calls for the companies and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to solve this problem, we were angered to learn that another deadly pyralid herbicide, aminocyclopyrachlor, was widely sold in the spring of 2011, following its approval by the EPA in August 2010. Invented by a team of scientists at DuPont and sold as Imprelis, aminocyclopyrachlor is marketed to control weeds in cool-season lawn grasses, especially bluegrass (it is not generally sold in warmer climates, where bluegrass lawns are rare). DuPont never denied that Imprelis-treated lawns would create killer compost. Lost in a 19-item bulleted list on Page 7 of the 9-page
