In 2017, The EPA reached an agreement with Monsanto and BASF to classify the herbicide dicamba as a restricted use pesticide to mitigate further drift incidents. The product can now be applied only by certified applicators or someone in the presence of a certified applicator. Other changes to the dicamba label include requiring special dicamba training for applicators and reducing the maximum application wind speed from 5 to 10 miles per hour. Farmers will also have to keep detailed records to ensure compliance and help trace future crop damage. These changes were voluntarily agreed to by Monsanto and BASF.
