Press Release - The Deadly Chemicals in Cotton

Posted on March 06 2012

http://www.ejfoundation.org/page324.html

 Cotton, the most valuable non-food agricultural product, is labelled as the world's “dirtiest” crop: 

  • US$2 billion’s worth of chemicals are sprayed on the world’s cotton crop every year, almost half of which is considered toxic enough to be classified as hazardous by the World Health Organisation.

  • Cotton is responsible for the release of 16% of global insecticides – more than any other single crop.

  • In total, almost 1kg of hazardous pesticides is applied for every hectare of global cropland under cotton.
