New Words for the Lexicon: “Agrotoxins” and “Crop Protecttion Chemicals”
Remember when the words in use were "weed killer" or "herbicide" ?
A news article from Brazil makes repeated use of a loaded new term: agrotoxins.The article has a definite view. It bemoans Brazil’s continued use of large amounts of asbestos, and various pesticides banned in the EU and elsewhere.
The counter names/words? "Crop protection chemicals," as used here by a trade group apparently associated with the manufacturers of the chemical products.
