Creating Solutions Together

The Nebraska Agri-Business Association filed comments with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Pesticide Programs supporting Bayer Cropscience’s application for the registration of low-volatility Dicamba products.

Among the comments, Association President Scott Merritt stated, “While other chemistries exist, a diverse selection of crop protection products is vital to combat herbicide resistance and maintain long-term soil health.

The need for options in weed control will become more important moving forward to ensure farmers can maintain yields and limit the spread of resistant weed populations.”
