Farmers oppose state pesticide labeling

Fifty-four of the largest farm organizations in the United States have written to President Joe Biden declaring their opposition to state labeling for pesticides. 


They argue that labels should be national and follow science and said they fear states may make regulations that are based more on politics than science.


More specifically, the farm organizations raised concerns about a letter the U.S. Solicitor General wrote to the Supreme Court which is pondering whether to hear an appeal on the labelling issue.
