    Arkansas Passes in-Season Dicamba Ban Following Public Hearing

    Nov 08, 2017 02:27 PM

    Today the Arkansas State Plant Board voted 10-3 to pass an April 16 to Oct. 31 in-season dicamba ban for soybeans and cotton. The decision came after five hours of hearing public comments and deliberation by the board.

    The ban, and fine increase to $25,000, comes after nearly 1,000 official complaints regarding alleged dicamba damage in the state. Monsanto representatives urged members of the board to consider information from BASF that stated on 52% of the soybean acres in the state with Xtend technology purchased the Engenia product. The company questioned whether or not that meant generic products were used.

    University representatives, scientists, farmers and others all spoke—both in favor of and opposed to the ban. Those in favor of the ban discussed effects on not only row crops, but gardens, trees and bee keeping as well.

    The approved rules will now move to the Arkansas Executive Subcommittee and later be signed by the governor to officially put it into law. Watch for more updates as the story unfolds.
