Nebraska ag groups urge EPA to re-register dicamba products
A coalition of Nebraska ag groups is urging the EPA to move swiftly to re-register over-the-top, post-emergence dicamba products.
In a letter to EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler, the groups note that farmers are already beginning to make decisions about purchases of seed and crop protection products for the 2021 planting season. They request EPA issue new, simple, and understandable registrations for the dicamba products so farmers can appropriately plan for the coming year.
The groups say farmers, ag retailers, and applicators have not only made significant investments in dicamba tolerant crops but have made great strides in the safe and productive use of the product.
Nebraska groups behind the effort are the state’s Agri-business Association, Cooperative Council, Corn Growers Association, Farm Bureau, Grain and Feed Association and Soybean Association.
