    I believe that the EPA has always endeavored to make sincere efforts for protecting the population from a hostile environment. However, in the case of the new 2019 regulations concerning the use of Dicamba, I detect some “flaws”. In the past, if an agriculture product was proven to be hazardous, it was “pulled” from the market.
    Case in point: several years ago, arsenic acid was pulled from the market as a cotton defoliant because of the arsenic in its chemistry. There was no extensive and expensive training necessary to allow it to remain on the market, since the chemistry was dangerous.
    I would like to compare that to the “new” extensive and expensive training of the use of Dicamba for the upcoming 2019 growing season. Training in this case does not change the chemistry of the product. It would be like your mechanic telling you, “I can’t fix your breaks, but I can make your horn louder.”
