Minnesota farmers can now return Lorsban, Cobalt, Vulcan and similar chlorpyrifos insecticide products. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture canceled chlorpyrifos product registrations for use on food and feed at the beginning of this past year. Corteva Agrscience and ADAMA US have permission from EPA to take back the chemicals. Farmers with existing supplies of the insecticide should check with their ag retailer. If the ag supplier won’t take back the products, farmers can use the MDA Waste Pesticide Collection Program.
