What is Dicamba? | Dicamba Drift Lawyers

 

Dicamba is an herbicide that has been used for decades, typically as a pasture herbicide or for vegetation burn down prior to planting.

 

Monsanto developed XtendFlex cotton and Xtend soybeans, which are genetically-modified crops resistant to dicamba. This resistance allows for “over-the-top” application (application after the plants emerge from seed). Because XtendFlex and Xtend are resistant to dicamba, they will survive such applications while other weeds and plants will not.

 

Dicamba was approved for over-the-top application for XtendFlex and Xtend in Nov. 2016, which has caused a marked increase in dicamba utilization. This has led to estimated damage to millions of acres of non-target plants and crops.

Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane in conjunction with Arkansas attorneys file Dicamba lawsuit

Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane, with co-counsel Arkansas attorneys Michael Smith and Paul James, filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri on July 19, 2017 to assist farmers and property owners whose crops and plants have been damaged by dicamba.

 

Dicamba is a potent herbicide to which soybeans and other crops and plants are especially susceptible. Complaints of dicamba damage have been increasing, and hundreds of thousands of acres in 2017 are showing damage. The State Plant Board in Arkansas recently passed emergency rules temporarily banning the use of dicamba for over-the-top soybean weed control.

 

The recent increase in dicamba damage coincides with the release of Monsanto’s Xtend soybeans and cotton. Xtend crops are genetically modified to be resistant to dicamba. The sale of these products has resulted in increased spraying of dicamba, and damage to non-target crops and plants.

 

This lawsuit seeks to recover compensation for the farmers and landowners with crop or plant damage from dicamba application and/or dicamba drift. A copy of the filed complaint is available here
