Atrazine, 2-chloro-4-(ethylamino)-6-(isopropylamino)-s-triazine, an organic compound consisting of an s-triazine-ring is a widely used herbicide.


Its use is controversial due to widespread contamination of drinking water and its possible associations with birth defects and menstrual problems when consumed by humans at concentrations below government standards. Although it has been banned in the European Union, it is still one of the most widely used herbicides in the world.


Atrazine was banned in the European Union (EU) in 2004 because of its persistent groundwater contamination. In the United States, however, Atrazine is one of the most widely used herbicides, with 76 million pounds of it applied each year, in spite of the restriction that used to be imposed.[18][19] Its endocrine disruptor effects, possible carcinogenic effect, and epidemiological connection to low sperm levels in men has led several researchers to call for banning it in the US.

Tank mixing 8 to 16 ounces of dicamba with 1 to 2 pints of atrazine will control existing broadleaf and grass weeds, and will provide extended preemergence control of kochia often into May. An application of Clarity alone, suggests a pint provides better control than 8 ounces. However, a combination of ...

Pesticides are also contaminating these local lakes, but where those pesticides are coming from is still unclear. “According to the EPA, Swift Run Lake has too much atrazine in it,” Schelle said, citing the Ohio EPA's testing of Swift Run Lake in 2009. “We have to spend quite a bit of money removing atrazine.

And that use has skyrocketed in recent decades, in part due to Roundup's reputation as safer than alternative herbicides such as atrazine, and in part because Monsanto has been selling seeds of genetically modified crops that are resistant to glyphosate.
