Monsanto's Robb Fraley Asks Farmers to Call ASAP If They Are Dealing with Herbicide Drift Issues

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 14:59:24 CDT

Monsanto's Robb Fraley Asks Farmers to Call ASAP If They Are Dealing with Herbicide Drift Issues Monsanto's Chief Technology Officer, Robb Fraley, has sent an open letter to farmers on the issues surrounding crop damage in 2017 due to spray drift, apparently from Dicamba. Fraley says they have responded to farmers with the newest technology they are now marketing and want to do all they can do to help farmers be successful. Fraley writes "We are hearing that the overwhelming majority of farmers are experiencing tremendous success during this first year of commercial launch. However, we have also heard reports that some farmers are noticing signs of leaf cupping in nearby soybean fields, which could be attributable to dicamba."


Faley says if you are having any leaf cupping problems this growing season that he would recommend that you call Monsanto immediately- "Right now, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible at 1844-RRXTEND to report any leaf cupping or other symptomology you are seeing in your fields that you believe might be the result of off-target herbicide movement. Once we have your report, one of our agronomic specialists will contact you to arrange a time to meet you at your field and to review the symptomology together. We are working to respond to each report we receive from our farmer-customers and we will stand by you throughout the growing season."


Fraley thanks farmers for their business and assures those reading his letter that Monsanto is "committed to ensuring that you have an outstanding experience with our products."
