Ag Retailers Find Some Relief For Dicamba

Ag retailers were relieved to hear that the EPA is allowing the continued use of dicamba products this growing season.

Bryan Hoffman, with Farmers Pride, states, “We were a little concerned on what we were going to do with our product that we had in our facilities and what are farmers should do with it. So, now we at least know that we can apply it and sell it according to the way that the label states.”

Windy conditions over the past few days have delayed dicamba applications and the application window is starting to close on some fields because of the “45 days after planting” limitation.

The same plaintiffs from the dicamba case are suing to cancel registrations for some 2,4-D products from Corteva. They claims the EPA violated the Endangered Species Act by failing to consider the chemical’s impact on certain animals.
