The Environmental Protection Agency responded to last week's Ninth Circuit ruling with this cancellation order....



Illinois Farm Bureau President, Richard Guebert, Jr., issued the following statement...


“Illinois Farm Bureau has worked quickly to engage in discussions with stakeholders since the Ninth Circuit ruling vacating the registrations of three dicamba herbicides was announced last week.. On June 5, IFB submitted a letter to USEPA expressing concern and urging the agency to consider remedies to avoid sudden disruption during the 2020 growing season. 


“The USEPA cancellation order outlines limited circumstances under which existing stocks of the three affected dicamba products can be used for a limited time. We appreciate the guidance from USEPA to allow our members to use the product without further disruption for the 2020 soybean crop. As the largest soybean producing state in the nation, Illinois farmers have a considerable financial investment in the technology and are committed to its responsible use..


“This announcement is a result of a groundswell of activity and engagement within our organization and across the country. Illinois Farm Bureau looks forward to working with Illinois Department of Agriculture Acting Director Jerry Costello on the implementation aspects of this order for Illinois farmers.”
