Court Says No to Reversal on Dicamba

The Ninth Circuit Court has rejected a BASF motion to reinstate its Engenia herbicide registration.

BASF says it wasn’t made aware that its Engenia herbicide was at stake in the case before the June 3rd decision and did not have proper opportunity to defend the product in court.

The move puts dicamba registrations and product users back where they started the month, with three over-the-top dicamba herbicides no longer federally approved for use. For now, farmers and applicators can still apply any existing stocks that were in their possession on June 3rd, according to the cancellation order issued by the Environmental Protection Agency on June 8th.
