The American Soybean Association is encouraging farmers, dealers and all stakeholders to comment on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Monsanto’s next generation dicamba-tolerant weed management technologies, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and Bollgard II XtendFlex™ cotton.
ASA says it is important that the USDA follow through on its commitment to U.S. farmers to conduct timely, science-based reviews of new technologies. The group says positive comments will help support the USDA’s determination to provide soybean and cotton farmers the choice to plant new technologies.
The public comment period ends September 25th. For more information on how to submit a comment, click here.
