NDSU Extension Pesticide Program Specialist Andrew Thostenson says the yield impact of dicamba drift does matter. “Let’s imagine you had 70 bushel (per acre) soybeans and that’s a very very good crop. You got some dicamba exposure and you’re saying I had a great crop; it was 70 bushels, but maybe we left five bushels out there because of the dicamba. You’ll never know that, because growing conditions were such that it masked any of the problems.”
