This week’s Cotton Newsline is 3 cuts. All cuts are Keith Menchey, Manager of Science and Environmental Issues for the National Cotton Council.
Suggested Introduction 1:
Following a 2010 agreement with EPA, Bayer agreed to phase out Temik®. Keith Menchey, Manager of Science and Environmental Issues for the National Cotton Council, says they had timed production to end in 2012, to allow for an orderly market exit and meet immediate customer needs.
Suggested Introduction 2:
Menchey says the recent decision to cease production of Temik is the result of a citizen lawsuit against the plant in West Virginia where Bayer produces an intermediate product in the production of Temik.
Suggested Introduction 3:
Menchey says the amount of product currently in the marketplace is all of the Temik that will be available.
