USAgNet - 10/12/2018
A federal judge in Missouri has scheduled the first trial in a multidistrict litigation alleging dicamba-based weedkillers made by Bayer AG unit Monsanto Co and BASF Corp caused widespread crop damage after drifting across fields.
Reuters reports that the case of Missouri-based peach grower Bader Farms Inc, which alleges the companies conspired to create an 'ecological disaster,' will be fast-tracked for a trial starting in October 2019, according to an order on Friday by U.S. District
Judge Stephen Limbaugh.
