Ward provides an update on Arkansas dicamba cutoff date
The Arkansas State Plant Board has kept the cutoff date for dicamba application at May 25th despite a June 30th federal deadline for soybeans.
Arkansas Secretary of Agriculture Wes Ward says they did make some adjustments for some parts of Arkansas. “Those that are inside the levy of the Mississippi River to use the federal label there,” he says. “But for the rest of the state it will maintain that May 25th cutoff date.”
Ward tells Brownfield the board made the decision early last month. “And give producers and the industry some certainty as they’re preparing and planning for the 2021 growing season,” he says.
