American Soybean Association President and Worthington, Minnesota farmer Bill Gordon got most of his dicamba applied before the June 20 cutoff, but others weren’t as lucky. “The weather and court ruling has definitely been frustrating and adding stress to farmers.” Gordon is closely watching the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ dicamba case. “We could have back-and-forth for a long time,” said Gordon. “The EPA has really stepped up. We’re not always on the same page, but this administration will push back with common sense.” Gordon said the ASA is also focused on the label re-authorization of XtendiMax, Engenia and FeXapan herbicides and having conversations with the EPA on the future use of these herbicides after the 2020 growing season.
