LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Supreme Court has halted a fourth judge's ruling exempting some farmers from the ban of an herbicide that took effect last week.

Justices on Monday stayed a Clay County judge's order prohibiting the state Plant Board from enforcing its dicamba ban against a group of farmers in that county.

The state Plant Board's dicamba ban took effect last week and will run through Oct. 31. The ban was issued after the board received nearly 1,000 complaints last summer that the herbicide drifted onto crops and caused damage.

Justices have previously stayed similar rulings by judges in Pulaski, Mississippi and Phillips counties.
