Monsanto vs. land-grant weed scientists on dicamba

All,

 

I filed this story yesterday on Monsanto taking on a couple weed scientists' research/data--one currently with the University of Arkansas and the other who was a U of A Extension weeds scientist for several decades.

 

What's your take on this?

 

I was a little surprised when I read Monsanto's petition disagreeing with the Arkansas proposal to limit dicamba applications for no later than 4/15/18,  but Monsanto says it's nothing personal, just a data disagreement they have with them.
