WI DATCP Makes Announcement Regarding Dicamba

In response to the recent federal appeals court ruling regarding the use of certain dicamba products, the WI DATCP announced late on Friday that the court’s decision to remove the registration for several herbicides will not immediately impact Wisconsin soybean producers. DATCP states for the order to take effect in Wisconsin, the EPA must take action to revoke the registration of these products.
 
Premier will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. Please consult with your Premier Agronomist if you are planning to treat your soybeans this season with Engenia, FeXapan, or EtendiMax herbicides

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
