EPN Comments on a New Registration Application for the Pesticide Dicamba

On Monday, June 3, 2024, EPN submitted comments on Bayer CropScience LP’s application for a pesticide registration that would allow “over-the-top” use of dicamba on dicamba-resistant soybeans and cotton. The proposed label would enable applications to dicamba-resistant soybeans up to crop emergence. EPN previously wrote a letter to EPA in which we set forth our concerns with dicamba registrations. We have significant concerns with Bayer’s new application, and we think that EPA should either deny the proposed registration or impose an additional condition on the registration requiring Bayer to fund an independently administered program that fully compensates anyone who sustains injury due to off-target movement of dicamba.
