BASF Files Motion to Intervene in Ninth Circuit Case that Vacated Dicamba Registrations

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, June 12, 2020 – BASF has filed an emergency motion to intervene following the decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to vacate the federal registrations of three dicamba-based herbicides, including BASF’s Engenia® herbicide. The Court’s June 3, 2020 decision brought BASF’s product into the case for the first time. BASF has now made the request to intervene after careful consideration of the sudden and severe financial impact vacating the registration has had on farmers during this critical application time, when farmers now have less than a month to protect millions of acres under threat from resistant weeds.

  

Statement on EPA Action after Ninth Circuit Order

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, June 9, 2020 - While BASF supports the U.S. EPA’s action to allow the use of existing stocks of Engenia® herbicide by growers and commercial applicators, we believe that additional clarity and flexibility is required to address the complexities of the supply chain so that farmers have the opportunity to use Engenia this season in accordance with the EPA order. Therefore, we will be working with the EPA to address this issue.
