The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to terminate Bayer’s XtendiMax, BASF’s Engenia and Corteva Agriscience’s FeXapan herbicide registrations immediately. The court says EPA substantially understated risks that it acknowledged in dicamba use. The ruling applies to the current registration, which expires in December. The ruling does not apply to Syngenta’s Tavium herbicide. In response to the ruling, the EPA says they are reviewing the court decision and will move promptly to address the court order.
