Ag Groups Welcome Ruling in Federal Seed Protection Case
USAgNet - 11/29/2016

Following a ruling from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the case of Anderson v. EPA last week, the American Soybean Association welcomed a significantly positive development in the ongoing fight to protect farmers' rights to use proven-safe seed treatments.

In the court, the ruling sided with EPA and an industry coalition of intervenors including ASA, CropLife America, American Seed Trade Association, Agricultural Retailers Association, National Cotton Council of America, National Association of Wheat Growers and National Corn Growers Association in confirming that additional regulation would unnecessarily duplicate EPA's existing science-based regulatory review.

ASA President Richard Wilkins, who farms in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed in Greenwood, Del., said the ruling is a big step forward in the push for a science-based system.
