State ag officials call for EPA to allow use of existing dicamba stocks

The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture is urging the EPA to allow farmers access to dicamba products that have been purchased for the 2024 growing season.

Senior Director of Public Policy RJ Karney tells Brownfield state ag directors, secretaries, and commissioners want the agency to use discretion with current stocks.

“We want to make sure that EPA can find a way to not disrupt and allow farmers to utilize what they’ve currently purchased for the 2024 growing season,” he says.  “Especially looking at the southern regions of the country right now, that growing season begins next week.”

He says officials also want EPA to work with manufacturers to reduce disruptions for the 2025 season.
