    Default Dicamba Herbicide Drift: A Disaster in 2017, Will Be Much Worse in 2018

    TESTING... Steve Smith On October 13th, an EPA press release announced the agency’s decision to allow the use of dicamba herbicides during the 2018 growing season for post-emergent weed control in genetically engineered, dicamba-resistant soybeans and cotton. Prior to crop year 2017, there were no registered, post-emergent uses of dicamba on any crops — GMO or conventional. The first labels authorizing post-emergent applications of new, supposedly less volatile formulations of dicamba were issued in mid-November, 2016. Serious crop damage problems from dicamba drift and volatilization occurred in 2017 throughout the Southeastern and Midwestern U.S., impacting many million acres. Both state regulators and the EPA have been debating for nearly a year what restrictions, if any, to place on post-emergent dicamba use in 2018. TEST

    So, if dicamba is unconrollable in environments of high temperatures and volatile atmospheric conditions, then this stuff shouldn't be used anywhere. Case closed!
