Bud Nip, Chlorpropham, Bud-Nip, Taterpex Science Project?

3rd Grade Bud-Nip (Chlorpropham) Science Project that Teaches the Teacher! What is Bud Nip and why is it keeping sweet potatoes from sprouting, that is what one precocious 3rd grader is asking! Should we be eating it and why is Chlorpropham Bud-Nip, Taterpex used on our food, is it safe Safe, and is Chlorpropham Bud-Nip, Taterpex really Needed on our food?

Makes you really think what is in our food!  This third grade girl found an anomaly and persisted to go further doing more research on her science project, that should make everyone think twice what is in our food!!
