    EPA SAYS IT WILL RE-EVALUATE DICAMBA LABEL RESTRICTIONS IN LIGHT OF AG GROUPS' CONCERNS
    BrownfieldAgNews reports:

    A regional EPA administrator says concerns brought forth by the American Soybean Association and Plains Cotton Council over new dicamba label restrictions WILL be addressed by the EPA.

    The groups are suing, not to vacate the label, but to challenge the new buffer requirements and cut-off dates for over-the-top application.

    EPA Region Seven Administrator Jim Gulliford tells Brownfield Ag News,

    "I think the challenge from the commodity organizations is, well, we can't be certain about when we get our crop planted so how can we be certain about these cut-off dates. So, I think it's an issue that will be dealt with."

    Gulliford says states have the authority to add restrictions but not necessarily to increase or expand label restrictions that the EPA has applied. He says that is not a path for states to change the date-specific use of the products.
