AgPro Podcast: Crop Consultants Need Fully Stocked Toolbox For Sustainability
On the most recent AgPro podcast, crop consultants from across the country were asked: What regulations are you concerned about in 2018? What are you doing to address those regulations?

“Currently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is doing a total class review on pyrethroids. That’s really damaging because that would take a whole class of chemicals from my toolbox. This is a first for the EPA to do a total class review of chemistries, not one product. And because it is used on pretty much all of our crops, its loss would be detrimental to our farmers. Dicamba is a big issue, too. State and federal labeling are different in North Dakota, and my farmers want to keep this technology, so I believe that we will do everything we can to make sure that we are judicious in its use.”
