ARA Letter to EPA Concerning Dicamba Ruling

Feb 08 2024

ARA sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan in disagreement with the ruling out of a federal district court in Arizona that vacated registration for over-the-top (OTT) applications of dicamba on dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton.

OTT dicamba products Xtendimax (Bayer), Engenia (BASF) and Tavium (Syngenta) were all included in the decision which is national in scope.

ARA disagrees with this decision because it removes a determination that should be made by a science-based regulatory agency to a federal court, and the timing of the decision will be extremely disruptive to ag retailers, distributors, manufacturers and farmers who made plans to use these products in 2024.
