Federal Court overturns EPA’s decision that glyphosate registration is lawful

A federal court in California has ruled that Monsanto’s glyphosate registration is unlawful because it increases cancer risks and threatens endangered species.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned EPA’s decision on Friday and said that the agency didn’t adequately consider whether the weed killer causes cancer and neglected its duties under the Endangered Species Act.

In a statement to Brownfield, Bayer says it believes the EPA will continue to conclude that Glyphosate is safe and not carcinogenic through a rigorous review process.  The company says it’s committed to working with the Agency to minimize environmental impacts and the product remains available for growers to use.
