Farm Bureau Commends EPA Action on Dicamba Use

Wed, 10 Jun 2020 10:37:43 CDT

Farm Bureau Commends EPA Action on Dicamba Use The American Farm Bureau Federation commends the swift action by the Environmental Protection Agency to allow farmers who have already purchased dicamba products to use existing stock this season. Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals prohibited the use of three dicamba products, effectively taking them off the market as of June 3, 2020. AFBF President Zippy Duvall wrote a letter to the EPA requesting farmers be allowed to use dicamba this season.
The following statement may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:
“Farmers across the country invested in dicamba-resistant seeds based on the EPA’s previous approval. Millions of acres of crops have already been planted and there’s no turning back. The clarity provided by the EPA provides certainty for farmers who were left wondering how they would protect their crops and stock America’s pantries.”

Background
• The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals banned three dicamba products: XtendiMax, Engenia and FeXapan.
• Stocks of dicamba purchased before June 3, 2020, may be used until July 31, 2020.
