Farmer wants dicamba certainty
A southern Ohio farmer says the ruling vacating the registration of three dicamba products is concerning.
Greg Corcoran says it does help that farmers are able to use existing stocks of the products through the end of July.
“That was our program and to see that ruling that came out was really was concerning but thankfully we were able to use what we had on hand,” he says.
He tells Brownfield farmers need certainty because they’re already planning inputs and programs for next year.
“We know the rules and regulations with guidelines, and we want to follow them but we need to know what they are and they can’t keep changing,” he says. “We need products that we can use to help fight off resistant weeds and if we don’t find a way to do that we’re going to see a lot of loss and it could be catastrophic in the long run.”
Corcoran says the rules need to be clearly defined to help farmers make decisions.
