Maryland Ag Law Webinar Series: Current Legal Issues Associated with Dicamba Drift

To better assist Mid-Atlantic service providers to prepare for developments in agricultural law, the Agriculture Law Education Initiative will host a quarterly series of webinars beginning in June focused on developing legal issues in agriculture and food law.

Current Legal Issues Associated with Dicamba Drift. Presenters: Tiffany Lashmet (Texas Agrilife Extension), Kelly Nuckolls Winslow (ALEI), and Matt Morris(UME). Mid-Atlantic soybean growers are looking to increase their acreage of dicamba-resistant soybeans in 2018 from 2017. As acreage increases, it is important to keep in mind that other regions have seen lawsuits filed over increased drift damage often blamed on this new technology. This webinar will focus on a review of the new technology and how it is different than earlier dicamba herbicides. The webinar will also cover the lawsuits and other developing legal issues associated with dicamba drift.
