What is Atrazine?
Problems Associated With Atrazine
Once introduced into the environment, atrazine tends to runoff with rainfall or enter soil, and eventually enters groundwater or bodies of surfacewater. Atrazine also has the potential to enter the air. Atrazine does not tend to accumulate in living organisms and therefore does not usually build up within the food chain. Atrazine may also affect the blood-hormone levels of some organisms, affecting their ability to reproduce. The kidneys, liver, and heart of animals have also been found to be affected in response to atrazine exposure.
