EPA’s Wheeler disappointed in court dicamba decision

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler says the agency is disappointed with the 9th Circuit appeals court decision to vacate registration on three dicamba herbicides. In a statement today, Wheeler said the 2020 growing season is well underway and this creates undue burden for farmers, the nation’s first conservationists. He says EPA is “assessing all avenues to mitigate the impact of the Court’s decision on farmers.”

The statement did NOT say whether farmers can legally continue to use the products or buy them.

UPDATE: In a statement provided to Brownfield, Bayer acknowledged EPA’s statement to the media and said it looks forward to further guidance.
