  • NCGA details issues with Dow and DuPont merger

    From Chris Clayton, DTN Ag Policy Blog

    As the National Corn Growers Association meets for its Corn Congress in Washington, D.C., this week, the group has weighed in with a letter late last week to Renata Hesse, a deputy assistant attorney general in the antitrust division at DOJ regarding the Dow-DuPont merger. Dow and DuPont are wading through the regulatory approval of a $130 billion merger that would lead to potentially three different divisions, including an agricultural spin off of a combined seed and chemical company that would have about $19 billion in annual revenues combined. NCGA President Chip Bowling, who signed the letter for the corn growers, noted the merger and others like it are going on in the middle of some challenging times for farmers. The letter cited USDA figures showing farm income has fallen 55% since 2013 while debt-to-asset ratios are rising.

  • EPA rejects science in latest atrazine report

    (From the Triazine Network) An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) draft report on the herbicide atrazine is cause for alarm says the Triazine Network, a national coalition of farm organizations representing well over 30 agricultural crops in over 40 states. The group insists if the EPA continues to use the same false logic or endpoints as noted in the preliminary risk assessment, it could lead to a de facto ban on atrazine. Farmers use the popular herbicide for weed control in growing the vast majority of corn, sorghum and sugarcane in the United States.
