The lawsuit comes as Arkansas’s Plant Board voted Tuesday to limit Dicamba applications of Engenia herbicide to hooded sprayers only, with a one-mile downwind buffer. Engenia is the only dicamba-based herbicide that can be used in Arkansas after April 15th. The lawsuit filed last week claims Monsanto and BASF implemented and controlled the dicamba crop system, releasing seed technology without a corresponding, safe, and approved herbicide. The farmers allege that Monsanto and BASF sold the dicamba crop system while knowing it could wipe out crops, fruits, and trees that are not dicamba tolerant. The farmers claim that those who do not plant dicamba tolerant crops are left with no protection from the herbicide.Arkansas is investigating more than 100 dicamba drift complaints this year.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Arkansas Farmers Suing Monsanto, BASF over Dicamba SHARE SHARE

Ponca City, Okla., native Brendon Gemmill reigns as the defending Stampede champion after making a late move to top last year’s event. It was his second Modified Stampede triumph after capturing his first win in 2014. Money was one of a handful of drivers to kick off the new season on the right foot with Luke Cranston (Sprint Cars), Dakota Sproul (SportMods), Angel Munoz (Stock Cars) and Tathan Burkhart (Hobby Stocks) each getting an early head start towards a potential 2019 track championship by racing to victory lane. Penokee’s Clay Money tuned up for the Stampede by besting a field of 22 in Saturday’s season opener, fending off challenges from past track champion Clay Sellard and reigning track champion Nick Link for his first Modified triumph atop the 3/8-mile clay oval. Tickets to Saturday’s Stampede are $15 for adults while children 11 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pit passes are $30. Gemmill joined Woodward’s Cole Traugott and multi-time national champion David Murray Jr. as two-time winners of the event. Traugott reeled off back-to-back wins in 2016 and 2017 while Oberlin’s Murray swept both nights of the Inaugural event in 2013 before topping the 2015 edition as well. Along with the Modified Stampede, Saturday’s card also includes championship chase action in the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks with the green flag flying at 7:30 p.m. DODGE CITY, Kan. – After a stellar opening night that attracted a total of 108 racers to Dodge City Raceway Park this past Saturday night, the spotlight shifts to the IMCA Modifieds with Saturday night’s seventh Modified Stampede.
