HURON, S.D. — The South Dakota Department of Agriculture fielded dozens of dicamba injury complaints from off-target drift this season, and they're still taking input from farmers to determine the total number of acres hit. State officials are looking at possible label changes for spraying dicamba on Xtend soybeans next year, but a lot of that hinges on what farmers find in the fields this fall. Farmers that had some or widespread cupping in soybeans this season may not know the full production impact until harvest.
WASHINGTON D.C. — During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Donald Trump called the North American Free Trade Agreement one of the worst trade deals in history and promised voters he would get rid of the agreement as president. Trump attempted to do that recently when he announced he was going to withdraw from NAFTA, only to reverse that decision less than 12 hours later. Trump says due to the urging of the leaders in Canada and Mexico he is willing to renegotiate the deal. However, what will the White House renegotiate to make the pact better for agriculture?
WASHINGTON, D.C. — After a long and controversial fight, Congress passed a national biotech food labeling bill last summer.
