The Center for Biological Diversity, the Center for Food Safety and other plaintiffs filed an emergency order asking the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to end the use of XtendiMax, Engenia and FeXapan herbicides and to hold EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler in contempt of court. The Center for Food Safety Science Policy Analyst Bill Freese said the EPA has intentionally misinterpreted the court’s initial order to ban the product use. “We acknowledge that it’s unfortunate that the decision had to come when it did. We would have wished for it to come earlier so farmers had time to make decisions,” said Freese. “It wasn’t in our control when the court made the decision.” In an interview with the Red River Farm Network, Freese also talked about pending litigation on Enlist. “We see a lot of the same issues in the EPA’s volatility assessment of the Enlist Duo.” Hear the interview.
