Protect the Future of Crop Protection in Missouri

Glyphosate-based pesticides are Missouri farmers' #1 tool to control weeds, keep yields high, and implement conservation practices that use less land and resources. These products are integral to the production of corn, soybeans, and cotton, helping Missouri farms compete in an increasingly competitive global market and ensure a robust and affordable, domestic food supply.

National Security

Don't Make Missouri Farmers Reliant On Foreign Countries.

Food security is national security. From critical agricultural inputs to semiconductors, medicine, and PPE, we must maintain strong domestic supply chains to ensure America has continued access to essential products.

The U.S. is one of only two countries that produce glyphosate.

Domestic pesticide production ensures American farmers have the tools they need without relying on foreign countries.

Without domestically-produced glyphosate, American farmers would be forced to rely on foreign-produced glyphosate.

For nearly half a century, glyphosate has enabled Missouri farmers to implement conservation practices that use fewer resources, helping family farms compete in the global market.

Farmers are already struggling to turn a profit. Nearly three-quarters of farms make less than 10 cents on every dollar they spend—and that’s before taxes.

Compared to pricier alternatives and tilling practices, glyphosate saves Missouri farmers an estimated $358M annually.

Decreased crop yields would make it very difficult for Missouri farmers to stay in business.

Don't make the toughest job on earth even tougher.

Food Security

An essential tool for a growing population.

As a top-10 producer in the nation of corn and soybeans, Missouri farmers depend on glyphosate for successful harvests, ensuring we have enough to eat. 66% of all corn acres and 91% of soybean acres in Missouri rely on glyphosate.

Up to 40% of crops are lost to pests and diseases each year.

Without pesticides, losses could be as high as 85%.

Higher prices and lower yields would result in many more people going hungry, particularly disadvantaged children.
