BASF responds to court ruling on dicamba herbicides
BASF says the court decision that vacates the registration of three dicamba herbicides, including BASF’s Engenia, could be “devastating to tens of thousands of farmers”.
In a statement provided to Brownfield, the company said “Time is of the essence. Farmers have less than a month to protect millions of acres under threat from resistant weeds that could lead to significant revenue loss in an already challenging season.
“We are currently reviewing the Order and are waiting on further direction from the U.S. EPA on actions they will take as a result of this Order. We will use all legal remedies available to challenge this Order and we remain committed to serving our customers with safe and effective crop protection solutions, including Engenia herbicide.”
