North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the state dicamba application restrictions weren’t exactly successful. “Last year, we had 165,000-plus acres affected in North Dakota. This year, we’re only showing 23,000. Is the 23,000 still unacceptable? I suspect you’d have to say yes. Maybe it was some ornamentals. Maybe it was a dry bean crop. Maybe it was soybeans. There are still some concerns out there. Why is this moving off target? It simply goes back to why I made a request to the EPA to allow and consider weed species and weed size to be a determining factor when it comes to what the rate should be or could be.” The Environmental Protection Agency could decide on the fate of dicamba in early September.
