Dicamba Still An Issue

Dicamba Still An Issue

Posted: Updated:

The number of dicamba drift complaints continue to pile up but regulators say federal help can’t be found.

Last month, DTN reached out to the Environmental Protection Agency for comment. According to an EPA spokesperson, the agency is working with states to determine the extent of the damage But state regulators say the EPA hasn’t reached out or investigated drift reports. Regulators say it’s a different response than 2018 when EPA representatives visited sites, held forums, and routinely filed injury reports.

So far this year, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Minnesota are reporting a record number of cases. In Illinois alone, 450 injury complaints have been reported, up 40 percent from the year before.
