The increasing use of dicamba is putting birds at risk in our agricultural landscape. Dicamba is an herbicide, the use of which is skyrocketing because Monsanto/Bayer is pushing its soybean and cotton varieties that have been genetically modified to be resistant. Dicamba’s volatility means it can do damage to non-GMO crops and native plants far beyond where applied. Dan will provide an update on Audubon Arkansas’s advocacy and community science monitoring campaigns.
