"Alexander, who was elected circuit judge in the Marion division in 2016, said the farmers "face the immediate, irreparable harm to their crops" without the restraining order. The harm from not being able to spray dicamba against weeds now resistant to other herbicides outweighs any injury to the state, she said." I wonder if Judge Alexander or anyone else has considered the potential "drift" of this poison into the small towns in the Delta, since many of the fields are immediately adjacent to these towns? When is the Arkansas Farm Bureau going to speak up for the hundreds of farmers who are for the ban?
