Press Releases

Washington, D.C. (February 14, 2024)—”I would like to express our appreciation for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s action today in issuing an existing stock order for dicamba products whose registration was vacated last week by a federal court in Arizona. By moving quickly and allowing use of product already in the supply chain, EPA is providing some level of certainty for cotton and soybean producers across the country. NCFC and its members will continue to analyze the order in the coming days and we look forward to engaging further with EPA on questions we have on specifics.”
