Dicamba And Volatility - Didn't See,. Didn't Look?

Some weed scientists say if you don't look for volatility you may not find it.

Put another way, if a label says "low-volatility" that may on the face of it admit to volatility.  Now the argument is down to how much volatility.  How much really asks, how much is too much?  That may depend on whose soybeans are curled or whose tomatoes are crisped.

 

You get the idea that to the chemical companies, "low-volatility" means "no-volatility".  400,000 acres of soybeans in Missouri might take some exception to that notion.
