Dicamba Drift and Damage...

...Be watching for this in the news. The various state ag departments don't want to talk about it. The farm newspapers are trying to play it down. It is damaging crops and timber, and there has been a homicide in Missouri because of it. You do the searches.  I think this is what has been causing cupping and leaf tatters at our place. Your universities that teach ag-related programs should be spreading the word for all to hear, but they get their money from companies that make and market the chemicals, so I am a few years behind the learning curve on this...Here's one I saw in Wayne County, Illinois today. Thirty acres of high quality white oak timber, with all the foliage damaged.
