"E makaʻu nui ka poʻe soya a me nā mea kanu pulupulu i ka ʻino kālā inā pale ʻia mai ka hoʻohana ʻana iā Dicamba Products i kēia wā ulu," i ʻōlelo ʻia e kahi pōkole i waiho ʻia e ka American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Cotton Council of America, National Association of Wheat Growers, National. ʻO ka hui ʻo Growers Growers, a me nā mea hoʻolaha ʻo Sorghum National.

"Ua hoʻāʻo ʻo EPA a me nā ʻoihana pesticide e huikau i ka pilikia a hoʻāʻo e hoʻoweliweli i ka ʻAha," i ʻōlelo ʻia ʻo George Kimbrell, ka luna loio a me ka ʻōlelo aʻoaʻo a CFS no nā mea noi. "Ua paʻa ka ʻaha i ka huahana me ke kānāwai kū ʻole i ke kānāwai a ʻaʻole hiki i nā manamana ʻana o EPA ke hoʻololi i kēlā."

ʻO ke kauoha e pāpā ana i nā huahana dicamba a ka hui i hoʻomaka i ka haunaele i ka ʻāina mahiʻai no ka mea he nui nā mea kanu soybean a me nā pulupulu i kanu i miliona mau ʻeka o nā hua kanu dicamba-tolerant e hoʻololi ʻia e Monsanto me ka manaʻo e mālama i nā nāhelehele i kēlā mau māla me nā lāʻau kanu dicamba i hana ʻia e ka ʻekolu hui. ʻAe nā mea kanu i ka dicamba ʻoiai e make ka mauʻu.

hopena waiwai nui paha ka hopena o ka lilo. "

I ka wā a Monsanto, BASF a me DuPont / Corteva i ʻōwili ai i kā lākou lāʻau kanu lāʻau dicamba i kekahi mau makahiki i hala aku nei ua ʻōlelo lākou ʻaʻole e hoʻoliʻiliʻi nā huahana a neʻe aku i nā mahinaʻai e pili kokoke ana ʻoiai ua ʻike ʻia nā mana kahiko o ka make ʻana i ka nāhelehele lāʻau dicamba. Akā ua hōʻoiaʻiʻo ʻole kēlā mau hōʻoia i waena o nā hoʻopiʻi ākea o ka dramba drift hōʻino.

"ʻAʻole hiki ke hōʻike akāka ʻia ko lākou hoʻowahāwahā ʻia no kēia mikiona ma mua o kā lākou mālama nui ʻole ʻana i ka ʻaha a ka Aha Hoʻokolokolo Kaapuni ʻeiwa e kāpae koke nei i nā noi kiʻekiʻe loa o ka dicamba e pale aku i nā miliona o nā eka o nā mahiʻai mai hoʻopau luku ʻia."

Ua hoʻoholo ka jure e kipi ʻo Monsanto a me BASF i nā hana a lākou i ʻike ai e alakaʻi i ka hōʻino ʻana o ka hua no ka mea ua manaʻo lākou e hoʻonui ana i kā lākou pono ponoʻī.
