LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansans who want a say in the debate over the controversial weed killer dicamba have just one week left to submit their thoughts by email or mail.
The Arkansas State Plant Board voted in September to move forward with a possible 2018 growing season ban for the controversial chemical dicamba. That decision came after the state received nearly 1,000 complaints of alleged damage from the herbicide.
One chemical company has filed suit over the proposed 2018 growing season ban.
Arkansans can submit their written comments up until the close of business on October 30, 2017. Those can be via mail or email:
Attn: Susie Nichols or Brandi Reynolds, Arkansas State Plant Board, P.O. Box 1069, Little Rock, AR 72203 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Those who want to make their comments in person to the State Plant Board can attend a public hearing on the issue on Nov. 8 (details below):
