Reported Dicamba Crop Damage is High
Dicamba, a broad-spectrum herbicide is used to control annual and perennial rose weeds.
AgPro reports over one million acres of dicamba damage across the US. Improved training and understanding label requirements has made a difference, but it is still a big problem.
In studies by state departments of agricultural and University weed scientists, the number of complaints of dicamba damage in soybean growing states show that complaints have not seen much of a decrease in the last year.
There were some positive improvements due to training and changes in labeling, but overall the problem is not going away.
Not all states participated in the surveys, so the results only reflect investigations into those complaints that were reported.
AgTerra offers solutions for herbicide application tracking so that applicators in the field can provide accurate spray mapping and application reports to fulfill all data reporting requirements.
