28 Sep KARA organizes coalition letter to EPA administrator on dicamba product registration
Kansas Agribusiness Retailers Association organized a coalition of agriculture organizations to submit a letter to EPA administrator Michael Regan requesting the agency provide regulatory certainty and ensure continued access to dicamba products under the 2020 approved label.
The undersigned coalition of Kansas agricultural stakeholders represents cotton and soybean farmers, agribusiness, biofuels industry, and conservationists who seek the continued use of over-the-top (OTT), post-emergent application of dicamba herbicide products.
The letter also seeks state level flexibility on use and cut-off dates as necessary to meet the needs and growing conditions present in each state and region.
“As crop rotation and input decisions for next year are being made by agricultural producers now,” the letter said. “It is important that growers have timely notice of what herbicide products will be available during the 2022 growing season.”
Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansas Soybean Association, Kansas Cotton Association, Kansas Cooperative Council, Kansas Agribusiness Retailers Association, Renew Kansas Biofuels Association, Kansas Association of Conservation Districts and Kansas Grain and Feed Association all signed onto the letter sent to administrator Regan on Wednesday.
