ARKANSAS' SUPREME COURT REMOVES NINE OF 16 PLANT BOARD DIRECTORS
Agri-Pulse reports:

The Arkansas State Plant Board has been ordered by the state's Supreme Court to remove nine members appointed by groups representing ag retailers, seed dealers and crop dusters, among others.

The reserving of nine of the 16 voting seats on the board for "private industry" violates the state's constitution, the court found in its opinion. The legislature recently addressed the issue by giving sole power to the governor to make appointments to the board, but that won't go into effect until three months after the legislature adjourns.

The decision came in a case brought by farmers challenging the plant board's authority to set a cutoff date for dicamba use. This year, it will be June 30, about a month later than the last two growing seasons.
