Ag Retailers Urge EPA to Seek Immediate Stay of Federal Court Order on Dicamba

Fri, 05 Jun 2020 09:53:43 CDT

Ag Retailers Urge EPA to Seek Immediate Stay of Federal Court Order on Dicamba Today, Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) President and CEO Daren Coppock sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler regarding the Ninth Circuit vacature of three dicamba labels earlier this week.

"The immediate nature of the decision and mandate has already created chaos in our industry," said Coppock. "Growers are now without options at the worst possible time in their production year."

The letter requests EPA appeal the federal court ruling "using all legal avenues available ..." U.S. farmers are in the heart of their growing season, and planting decisions and subsequent herbicide application plans have been made. Ag retailers and growers will be scrambling to secure alternatives, which may not be readily available in time.

"This decision by the Ninth Circuit is an overreach and must be corrected immediately," said Coppock. "This will have a major impact on this year's crops if not handled very soon. The farm economy has already experienced major struggles this year and this is one that can easily be avoided.
