    AG GROUPS URGE EPA NOT TO IMPOSE NEW RESTRICTIONS ON HERBICIDES
    Agri-Pulse reports:

    Citing widespread problems in the global supply chain, four major farm groups are urging EPA not to impose new restrictions on herbicides.

    "We strongly urge EPA to avoid greater registration or label restrictions at this time, which are likely to exacerbate product shortages or lead to potentially catastrophic market disruptions," the American Soybean Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, National Corn Growers Association and National Cotton Council said in a letter Thursday to Michal Freedhoff, assistant administrator for the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention.

    ASA spokesperson Wendy Brannen said the groups are concerned about new conditions on the use of herbicides containing dicamba and 2,4-D. The agency is currently reviewing documents on dicamba crop damage submitted by registrants, and the registration of Enlist Duo, a herbicide containing glyphosate and 2,4-D, expires early next year.

    Depending on what the agency does, "it could lead to the transition of potentially millions of acres to alternative seed varieties/traits and pesticide products," the groups said. "There is no possible way already-stressed supply chains could accommodate a late transition of this type."
