Federal dicamba lawsuits are on hold for 60 days

The legal battles over dicamba are delayed due to President Joe Biden’s review of EPA regulations.

DTN broke down the current lawsuit.

The first comes from the National Family Farm Coalition who said that the EPA did not fix court ordered problems when they re-registered dicamba in 2020. They also claim that the EPA did not collect comments on the decision as required.

The second lawsuit comes from the American Soybean Association and the Plains Cotton Growers, and it is claiming the opposite. They argue the 2020 registration is too restrictive and hurts growers’ ability to control herbicide resistant weeds.

The federal legal battles are on hold for 60 days, but state level lawsuits may resume sooner.
