Dicamba Bans: Weeds Win — Bob Scott, Arkansas Extension Weed Specialist

The front line for battling weeds may well be Arkansas, where weed resistance to Monsanto’s Round Up ready products has led to new GMO seeds that are resistant to applications of two or more additional pesticides, notably Dicamba. Dicamba helps control the toughest weeds, but it can drift on to other crops or Soybean fields that are not planted with the newest GMO variety. This has led to extreme, neighbor, public and political battles about the future for Dicamba and possibly other products as well. To set the stage of what’ happening from the farm level perspectives, we welcome Dr. Bob Scott, Extension Weed Specialist with the University of Arkansas for table talk: “weeds find a way”. Attention is focused on Arkansas now, but other states are expected to follow.
