The Federal Court overturned EPA’s approval of dicamba-based herbicides yesterday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, 9th District.
“In a stunning rebuke of the Environmental Protection Agency, a federal court on Wednesday overturned the agency’s approval of popular dicamba-based herbicides made by chemical giants Bayer, BASF and Corteva Agrisciences. The ruling effectively makes it illegal for farmers to continue to use the product.” – Carey Gillam wrote in a USRTK.org article.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture will explore what options are available to growers in this growing season. The registration for the products were going to end in December 2020.
More will be forthcoming in the near future from the companies ad GDA.
