“If the aflatoxin is not eliminated before the nuts are consumed, people could die; and the most effective way to eliminate aflatoxin in nuts is with pesticides--triazines, such as simazine and atrazine, which have been found safe at levels up to 1,000 times what humans are exposed to when they're used on nuts.”
“Although few studies have examined the combined effects of triazine pesticides, the combination of simazine and atrazine have been reported to impact olfactory endocrine function in salmon in an additive manner.”
“Beyond Pesticides has compiled a list of 25 pesticides commonly used or recommended for use by state agricultural extension services, including: 2,4-D, bifenthrin, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, endosulfan, esfenvalerate, glyphosate, simazine and more.”
“Others like simazine will not control emerged weeds, but must be applied to the soil itself where weeds are killed as they germinate by absorbing the chemical through their roots.”
“Weed control in beans after the loss of simazine is now a real headache.”
“Pre-emergence herbicide options, now simazine has gone, are limited.”
