The pesticides that would be used include persistent and mobile chemicals, including known developmental and reproductive toxins. The overall pestcides include 4 new chemicals and 14 other pesticides, including 2,4-D, bromacil, chlorsulfuron, diquat, diuron, fluridone, hexazinone, teburthiruon, triclopyr, and picloram. The proposal would also allow the use of "new chemicals that may be developed in the future."While the goals seem fine, the methods don't, especially since non-chemical alternatives (fire, mechanical, manual, cultural, and biological control efforts) are available, according to Californians for Alternatives to Toxics.
