The inclusion of dangerous chemicals within farm fertilizers can have severe environmental and health effects, while contaminating farmland. Recent discoveries of so-called forever chemicals called Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) on farmland has raised new awareness about the critical importance of strong regulatory protections for fertilizers. IATP's recent work to protect farmland from PFAS-contaminated fertilizer, follows past work to block the use of sewage sludge and other industrial toxic waste as fertilizer.
