SDDA: sale and use of dicamba must be discontinued
The South Dakota Ag Department says the sale and use of the dicamba products impacted by the Ninth Circuit Court decision “must be discontinued immediately” until there’s further guidance from the EPA.
The department sent a letter to EPA Administrator Wheeler urging the agency to make their next steps quickly “so that producers and state regulatory agencies can plan accordingly. South Dakota’s special local needs label goes through June 30th.
It says the “unprecedented decision during the middle of the application season has had a devastating impact on many South Dakota producers.”
EPA’s statement issued Friday said it is assessing how to respond to the ruling.
