In 2017, researchers from the University of Florida and the University at Albany in New York published an article showing that combining glyphosate and an organic herbicide called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) can be an effective treatment for cannabis plants.
This herbicide was first developed in the 1950s, and it has since been used to treat both marijuana and tobacco plants.
In 2018, researchers at the University Medical Center in Munich published an investigation that found the use of Bt to treat marijuana is significantly more effective than that of glyphosate.
Now, the US Environmental Protection Agency has announced a new study that will look into the safety of Btr-based herbicides.
The US Department of Agriculture announced in March that it will start a study to determine if the use is safe and whether there are any adverse effects from the use.
The EPA said the results of the study will be released in the first half of 2021.
The study will look at the safety and efficacy of Btc-based glyphosate herbicides, and if Btc can be safely used for other types of crops as well.
The weedkiller Bt was developed to treat two major diseases: dengue fever and malaria.
In 2016, researchers in Brazil reported that a Bt strain that was sprayed on crops from cotton and soybeans caused the death of at least 11 people.
The report found that a third of the deaths were caused by exposure to the Bt-sprayed cotton and a third by the Bts in the soybean crop.
Since the first phase of the EPA study, the agency has received numerous reports of people suffering health issues from Bt exposure.
In a statement released on Wednesday, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said the agency is committed to finding and addressing the safety issues that arose from Btr’s use.
“While we have not yet reached a consensus on the long-term safety of glyphosate, our priority is to ensure that Btc is safe,” he said.
“We remain committed to the safety testing and use of this herbicide.
We are also working with our partners in industry and academia to develop an independent scientific assessment of Btn-based pesticide safety.”
The EPA has not yet released the full study results.
“The safety of the Btc herbicide is one of the top priorities of the agency,” Pruitt said.
In March, the EPA announced a $4 million funding program to fund a new safety assessment of glyphosate and Btc.
The goal is to evaluate the safety profile of glyphosate for use in crops and weed control.
The agency said it would also conduct a study that would look into Btc’s ability to prevent and treat multiple weed species, including tobacco and cannabis.
