Reviewing Dicamba Regulations

Arkansas Dept of Ag

On Wednesday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that it will be extending the registration of dicamba products that allow for “over-the-top” applications on dicamba-resistant cotton and soybean plants to control weeds.  The two-year registration will be in place through December 20, 2020.

The Arkansas State Plant Board, a division of the Arkansas Agriculture Department, has begun the process of reviewing the announced EPA label changes and will be considering the appropriate framework for the use of the products by farmers in Arkansas.

Three meetings are currently scheduled to discuss the use of dicamba products in Arkansas and the need, if any, for changes to Arkansas’s current dicamba regulations.

The first of the meetings in Monday afternoon at 1:00pm. All meetings are open to the public and will take place at the Arkansas Agriculture Department located at 1 Natural Resources Drive in Little Rock.   MORE
