Pesticide warning sign in an orange grove. The sign, in English and Spanish, warns that the pesticide chlorpyrifos, or Lorsban, has been applied to these orange trees.

Chlorpyrifos has been linked to developmental delays in kids and other side effects. The EPA is fighting a lower court’s ruling that it must ban the pesticide, which farmers say they need.
