Spell orders sales stopped of soybean-killing herbicide
HERNANDO — Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Lester Spell Jr. has placed a stop-sale order on the herbicide Warthog 2EC after laboratory testing confirmed that samples of the herbicide were contaminated with Dicamba, a product potentially damaging to soybeans.
Warthog 2EC, which contains the active ingredient Clethodim, EPA Reg. No. 83222-30, is used for weed control on soybeans, and is sold by J. Oliver Products, LLC, of Hernando.
At this time, the contaminated herbicide is responsible for soybean damage in the Midwest, and has not been sold in Mississippi.
