The Environmental Protection Agency is considering plans to protect more than 900 endangered species through its draft herbicide strategy. “Some of them work for us in North Dakota, some of them work for people in other parts of the country,” said Andrew Mauch, president, North Dakota Corn Growers Association. The EPA is seeking a blanket approach. “Maybe we can reduce those map sizes by 80 or 90 percent to get down to the critical habitat where these species actually are at and not just do a one-size-fits-all approach because that doesn’t work for the American farmer.” Mauch leads the National Corn Growers Association Production Technology Action Team.
