The case against Dicamba seems pretty clear to me. One farmer has been killed over an argument involving Dicamba and over a thousand have filed claims against its use with proof of damage. However, I was over in NE Arkansas this week and noticed plenty of signs in at least one small town that read, Farmers Need Dicamba, so I assume Monsanto will continue their lobby since I am sure a ruling against Dicamba will hit them square in the pocketbook. Also, what are you supposed to do if you live in one of these small Delta towns and they apply Dicamba a few hundred feet from your garden or fruit trees? How about addressing that also Governor Hutchinson.
