Agri-Pulse reports:

The legal battle over dicamba appears to have hit a lull after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied BASF's request that the court recall and stay its mandate vacating the registrations of Xtendimax, Engenia and FeXapan.

That decision was made Thursday and follows the court's earlier decision rejecting the petitioner groups' emergency motion to stop dicamba use this growing season. For now, at least, it looks like growers will have till July 31, as specified in EPA's June 8 cancellation order, to apply dicamba over the top on soybeans and cotton.

The court did not issue an explanation for its decisions. The petitioners have not decided whether to file anything else, but in seeking to intervene in the case, which the court agreed to, BASF said the court's June 3 opinion "will soon be the subject of appropriate petitions for rehearing."
