MORE ON COURT'S DICAMBA RULING, ALLOWS BASF AND CORTEVA TO INTERVENE
Agri-Pulse reports:

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision late Friday allowing dicamba use to continue this growing season.

In a one-sentence order, the court denied the petitioner groups' emergency motion that sought a halt to over-the-top dicamba use on soybeans and cotton following the court's June 3 decision vacating registrations of Xtendimax, Engenia and FeXapan.

The court also granted motions by CropLife America and grower groups to participate as friends of the court, allowed BASF and Corteva Agriscience to intervene (Bayer is already an intervenor), and ordered briefing for next week on BASF's motion to stay the June 3 decision.

The American Soybean Association said EPA's June 8 order allowing continued use of existing stocks through July 31 "provides for an orderly management of the distribution, sale, and use" of the three herbicides. An immediate ban "would have financially devastating consequences on America's soybean growers," ASA said.
