Dicamba “drift” destroying crops downwind from application sites of Monsanto’s toxic herbicide

https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-07-31-dicamba-drift-destroying-crops-downwind-from-application-sites-of-monsantos-toxic-herbicide.html#

July 31, 2017 -

Though dicamba has been on the market for several decades, it's historically been used only as a pre-emergent, meaning it was applied to soils before crop plantings. But farmers are now applying this noxious chemical product to crops after they've been planted – and reports indicate that they're doing so illegally, as dicamba isn't approved for post-planting use.

The reason for this is that dicamba is highly volatile, meaning it easily takes flight ...

The research, which was published in the journal Agrochemicals, showed that 70% of the pregnant women who were tested in Indiana from 2020 to 2022 had high volumes of dicamba in their urine – a sharp jump from the 28% found in an analysis a decade earlier.

In addition to the higher percentage of women having the chemical in their bodies, the concentrations they contained also went up more than fourfold, going from 0.066 up to 0.271 micrograms of dicamba ...

https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-03-16-court-upholds-arkansas-decision-to-ban-dicamba-herbicide.html

Tenneessee restricts use of Monsanto herbicide dicamba as damage to food crops spreads

https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-13-tenneessee-restricts-use-of-monsanto-herbicide-dicamba.html

March 13, 2019 -

The problem, farmers say, is that the dicamba formulations only work for crops that have been designed for it. Wind and weather conditions affect the pesticide, which cause dicamba to spread over to neighboring farms and damage other crops. Weed specialists from Missouri have stated that off-target movement from dicamba has damaged at least 203,045 acres of soybeans, along with 73 acres of watermelons, 18 acres of cantaloupes, 24 acres of certified ...

After complaints rolled in the past few years about the high drift and volatility of the controversial weed killer concoction Dicamba, Bayer's shills and charlatans figure they'll put some new words in the EPA officials' mouths (and probably some money in their pockets) to change the label on their 60-million-pound-a-year poison they pour on American "tolerant" soy and cotton. Their goal is to preempt the regulatory decision by pretending that HOW the toxins are ...

April 05, 2018 -

After dicamba is sprayed, its toxic chemistry carries through the wind and causes damage to nearby crops that aren’t genetically modified to withstand the chemical. It was originally intended to be sprayed as a pre-emergent, before the crops are planted, but farmers began to use it throughout the entire growing season. Not only is dicamba destroying the biodiversity of plant life in the ecosystem, but it is also taking out natural crops, forcing more farmers ...

September 21, 2017 - dicamba, of which a telltale sign is the curling downward of infected plants' leaves, like a dying black umbrella.

Dicamba was first approved for agricultural use in March 2017 – it was supposed to guarantee weed control in cottonwoods and soybeans to get rid of unwanted plants such as pigweed. Right after its approval, farmers all over the country planted over 20 million acres of dicamba-resistant soybeans.

However, instead of killing ...

While farmers would only purposely ...
