Minnesota Announces State-Specific Dicamba Restriction

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) has announced a state-specific restriction for the use of the herbicide dicamba in Minnesota for the 2019 growing season, in addition to those established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The decision follows MDA’s ongoing investigations and informal surveys into reports of crop damage from alleged dicamba off-target movement over the past two growing seasons. Minnesota will not allow dicamba application after June 20, 2019.
