Could charcoal-treated fencing help mitigate dicamba drift?
Researchers at the University of Missouri are exploring the use of activated charcoal to filter out dicamba.
They are testing charcoal-treated fencing to mitigate damage in treated fields, aiming to protect sensitive crops like tomatoes and legumes.
While not a large-scale solution, it could be effective in specific regions like grape-growing areas.
They also recommend collaborating with neighbors as a way to address the challenge of herbicide drift on crops.
