Missouri Ag director grateful for EPA dicamba allowance
Missouri Ag Director Chris Chinn says she’s grateful the EPA is using its regulatory tools at the federal level to allow the use of dicamba.
Chinn says after such an unpredictable year and the two challenging growing seasons before this, they hope the EPA’s decision provides farmers “the crucial guidance” they need for the rest of the growing season.
Missouri certified private and commercial applicators may continue to use existing stocks of the three dicamba herbicides Engenia, FeXapan and XtendiMax through July 31, 2020, according to the formal Cancellation Order issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on June 8. Any of these three products purchased after June 3, 2020, should be returned to the registrants for proper disposal.
