Ag Groups Join Cry Against Restrictions on Use of Enlist
In yesterday's email- we gave you details of a letter sent by Oklahoma Secretary of Ag Blayne Arthur to the EPA regarding the problems with the Enlist and Enlist Duo labels that keep this product from being used in much of the state of Oklahoma.

This morning- we give you another letter sent by several national ag groups with much the same cry.
the American Soybean Association and several other national agriculture groups are imploring EPA to consider new data that may allow for the lifting of inflexible, county-level herbicide prohibitions put in place on new registrations for Enlist and Enlist Duo. While the agency recently issued new seven-year registrations for the herbicides, many growers, despite having used these products historically, operate in counties prohibited from continued use of the product due to new Endangered Species Act (ESA) restrictions.

In the comments, the groups emphasize that, while the grower community at-large appreciates continued access to these important tools, the announcement does little for growers in the 217 counties where ESA restrictions have resulted in challenges due to the county-level prohibitions on these products.

Joining ASA on the letter was the American Farm Bureau Federation, National Cotton Council, and National Corn Growers Association.
