EPA will address challenges to new dicamba label

A regional EPA administrator says concerns brought forth by the American Soybean Association and Plains Cotton Council over new dicamba label restrictions WILL be addressed by the EPA.

The groups are suing, not to vacate the label, but to challenge the new buffer requirements and cut-off dates for over-the-top application.

EPA Region Seven Administrator Jim Gulliford tells Brownfield Ag News,

“I think the challenge from the commodity organizations is, well, we can’t be certain about when we get our crop planted so how can we be certain about these cut-off dates.
