BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The state Agriculture Department is asking North Dakota farmers to report any suspected crop damage caused by the herbicide dicamba.

Dicamba kills broad-leafed weeds but also can damage or kill legumes. This year was the first that any dicamba products were registered for use on post-plant soybeans.

Whether herbicide drift is causing damage to soybean crops has been a topic in many states including both Dakotas this summer.

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says his agency wants to quantify the number of potential damage reports and impacted acres through the survey . He says the information that’s gathered won’t be used for any enforcement actions.
