Press Release

ARLINGTON, Va. – NASDA CEO Ted McKinney issued a statement today following the EPA’s order on the use of existing stocks of the herbicide dicamba.

“As co-regulatory partners with EPA committed to preserving environmental stewardship, protecting the rural economy and securing a healthy food supply chain, NASDA commends EPA on issuing an existing stocks order for dicamba that is inclusive of products that are in the possession of growers or in the channels of trade. Today’s action will prevent severe detrimental impacts to our food, fuel and fiber availability.” NASDA CEO Ted McKinney


Last week at the organization’s Winter Policy Conference, NASDA members passed an action item encouraging EPA to immediately use all available discretion regarding existing stocks to ensure channels of trade are not disrupted in light of the Feb. 6, 2024 U.S. District Court of Arizona decision on dicamba.
