Indiana’s State Chemist Office has been busy ahead of the 2018 planting season preparing farmers to use the powerful herbicide Dicamba.

The controversial herbicide is allegedly drifting from neighboring fields and damaging other crops.
Part two in a three-part series on pesticide drift examines why produce growers worry the approval of new herbicide-tolerant crops could damage their own crops.
