Sumary of Roundup case fails to make cut at SCOTUS:
- In a heavy act from previous nonpartisan administrative policy, the Solicitor General’s brief argues that national chemical entrance and labeling duties do not preclude states from compel additional labeling duties, even if those duties run counter to national collections.
- We will be discussing the implications of the court’s statement and will determine what reforms may be needed to ensure a patchwork of state descriptions does not exist farmer access to these indispensable tools or science-based chemical rule.
- As one of the early Roundup cases, agriculture factions, including the American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, and National Cotton Council, wanted Hardeman analyze by the high court.
- ASA has 26 affiliated state associations representing 30 soybean-producing states and more than 500,000 soybean farmers.
