BASF will use all legal remedies available to appeal the jury’s decision in the Dicamba case

BASF is surprised by the jury’s decision in the Bader case and disagrees with the verdict. The company will use all legal remedies available and will appeal the decision.

Dicamba is a broad-spectrum active ingredient herbicide, first marketed 50 years ago and is registered for use in more than 70 countries. Dicamba is an important tool for farmers who are increasingly battling resistant weeds.

BASF strictly adheres to the global, regional and local regulations. The company is firmly committed to stewardship and sustainability. BASF is convinced of the safety of its products when they are used correctly following the label instructions and stewardship guidelines. In 2019, for example, more than 75,000 applicators have taken dicamba herbicide spray application training, of which BASF trained approximately 26,000.
