Dicamba Regulations Reviewed In December


Arkansas legislative committees will review proposed regulatory changes related to products labeled for agricultural use containing dicamba in December. The State Plant Board will also hold a public hearing and board meeting in December to consider a regulatory proposal to clarify pesticide registration procedures under the Arkansas Pesticide Control Act.

On December 5, the Arkansas House and Senate Agriculture, Forestry, and Economic Development committees will provide review of the changes to Pesticide Enforcement Response Regulations regarding increasing civil penalties for egregious violations. The State Plant Board voted on September 21st during a public hearing and board meeting to approve changes for Pesticide Enforcement Response Regulations that increased the maximum civil penalty from $1,000 to $25,000 for egregious violations from applications of dicamba or an Auxin containing herbicide, or any new herbicide technology released after August 1, 2017.    MORE
