Statement on BASF Petition for Rehearing Decision

August 17, 2020


We are disappointed the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denied BASF’s request to rehear its June 3, 2020 decision. We disagree with the decision and believe BASF deserves an opportunity to be heard on the merits. We are assessing additional legal options, including a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court.


We remain committed to ensuring growers have access to the safe and effective crop protection solutions they have come to rely on, including Engenia herbicide. BASF continues to pursue EPA re-registration of Engenia for use during the upcoming seasons. We have also submitted a registration application for a new combination product that includes dicamba and other active ingredients for over-the-top use on dicamba tolerant soybeans.


Engenia Herbicide is a U.S. EPA Restricted Use Pesticide.
