Nearly 200 farmers have obtained temporary restraining orders against the Arkansas in-season ban on dicamba use. A spokesperson for the attorney general’s office says those farmers are free to use dicamba while the orders are in place. The Arkansas State Plant Board will enforce federal label requirements for farmers who are spraying dicamba while the country restraining orders are in place. Monsanto has opted not to sell its XtendiMax herbicide, even though it’s registered for use in Arkansas on soybeans and cotton. The state Plant Board has banned dicamba use between April 15 and October 31.
