In California, teachers’ retirement savings indirectly fund Arysta, the world’s largest privately held agrochemical company and the producer of the new cancer-causing strawberry pesticide, methyl iodide.
California Ignores Its Own Scientists on Dangerous Pesticide
Correction requested. You are entitled to your opinion, but it should be based on fact. Shame on you for deliberately continuing to spread misinformation that methyl iodide is sprayed on strawberries. Not true.
Methyl iodide is not sprayed. It is a fumigant that is injected into the soil BEFORE crops are planted to kill soil-borne pests.
Methyl iodide, the cancer-causing strawberry pesticide has been pulled off the U.S. market! Congratulations to so many people that made this happen! State of CA pledges to support farmers with alternatives. All, all good.
