Dicamba drift claims process open
Farmers waiting to file dicamba drift damage claims can start the claims process. The nearly 11-billion-dollar court settlement announced last June with Bayer, which includes 400-million dollars to cover drift damage lawsuits filed between 2015 and 2020.
Under the settlement, affected farmers can receive up to 100% of their yield losses caused by off-target dicamba. Farmers will need a completed claim form and supporting documentation. They can complete the claim process on their own, have their attorney handle the claim, or they can retain one of the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee law firms.
The lawsuit was specifically against the Xtend system developed by Monsanto, which is now part of Bayer. Soybean farmers impacted by the drift of the Xtend formula can file claims online or by phone (855-914-4672) before May 28th.
Brownfield will be updating this story shortly.
