Parker Waichman LLP is a national plaintiff’s law firm that fights for full monetary compensation on behalf of victims of defective products. Our firm is offering a free case review to help farmers determine if they have a claim against Monsanto BASF, the manufacturers of Dicamba.
Did Your Farm Sustain Crop Damage Caused by Monsanto BASF’s Dicamba Herbicide?
Did Your Farm Plant Dicamba-resistant Cotton or Soy Which Was Banned By the 9th Circuit and the EPA?
Contact Parker Waichman LLP at 1-800-YOUR-LAWYER to receive your free case review if your farm has endured one of following Dicamba legal problems:
- “Dicamba Drift” Claims – Did your farm sustain crop damage caused by “Dicamba Drift?”
On February 17, 2020, a federal jury, in a Dicamba Drift lawsuit, awarded Bader Farms, a Missouri peach farm, $265 million in monetary compensation in a lawsuit filed against Bayer and BASF. The lawsuit alleged that the Dicamba herbicide could be carried by the wind and land on neighboring farms with non-resistant crops, leading to the destruction of entire fields of crops or extensive crop damage.
If your crops were damaged by another farm’s application of Dicamba, you might be able to recover monetary damages to compensate you for crop damage.
- The Dicamba Ban – Did your farm plant Dicamba-resistant cotton or soy this year, and now you find that you are unable to purchase or use Dicamba on your crops due to the 9th Circuit’s decision to overturn the EPA’s approval of Dicamba?
On June 4, 2020, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals forced the EPA to withdraw Dicamba, an herbicide being used on millions of acres of cotton and soybean crops throughout the United States. Farmers that are particularly hit hard by the ban and “Dicamba Drift” crop damage include Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
If your farm planted Dicamba-resistant crops, and now you are unable to purchase or use Dicamba herbicide on your crops, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your losses.
Our national plaintiff product liability attorneys are extremely concerned about the financial devastation caused by “Dicamba Drift” crop damage and the enormous potential losses farmers who planted Dicamba resistant crops will endure during the product’s ban. Parker Waichman LLP has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of both individuals and small business owners who have suffered damages caused by multi-national corporations.

What Are the Legal Issues Associated With Dicamba?
Parker Waichman LLP is investigating two types of legal actions against the manufactures of Dicamba.
The first type of lawsuit involves the product’s defect. Dicamba is a very volatile product that can turn into a vapor, which is then carried by the wind and may reach other farms growing non-resistant plants and causing significant drop damage. This defect in the product’s stability has led to the destruction of millions of acres of crops, which has caused economic losses to thousands of farmers. In addition, the affected farms are unable to file Federal crop insurance claims because farming insurance does not pay out on crops that have been damaged by herbicides. There are over 3.6 million acres of crops damaged by Dicamba drifting onto fields without resistance to the herbicide.
The second type of lawsuit involves the recent 9th Circuit withdrawal of Dicamba from the marketplace. Millions of acres of farmland have been planted with Dicamba-resistant peach trees, cotton, soy, and several other crops. The 9th Circuit recently ordered the EPA to withdraw its approval of the product and remove Dicamba from the market. Many crops are susceptible to weeds, which cause low crop yields. These weeds are often impossible to manually remove from the fields, and many herbicides used in the past are no longer effective in weed control. For example, pigweed is a significant problem for soybean farmers. In the past two years, Dicamba has become the “go-to herbicide” to control the growth of pigweed in soybean fields. Farmers who planted Dicamba-resistant crops are facing tremendous economic losses because they cannot purchase or use Dicamba to kill the pervasive and destructive pigweed. Lawsuits are being filed against BASF and Monsanto to recoup their losses because the companies released a dicamba-resistant seed but failed to produce a safe version of Dicamba that could be applied to the seeds.
