Dicabma Settlement Claims Period Starts

Farmers who believe they had crops damaged from off-target dicamba from 2015 to 2020 can now submit claims at or call 855-914-4672. The deadline to submit claims is May 28, 2021. The claims period began on December 29, 2020.
It’s part of a $400 million settlement announced last June that’s designed to compensate farmers for yield losses resulting from off-target dicamba crop damage.
“We are pleased that relief will soon be available to the thousands of farmers across America who have suffered yield losses due to off-target movement of dicamba,” said attorney Don Downing, chair of the court-appointed plaintiffs’ executive committee in the multidistrict litigation.
Under the settlement, affected farmers may receive up to 100% of their yield losses caused by off-target dicamba. That means impacted farmers can potentially recover 100 cents on the dollar of the losses that they can establish with standard farming records. Farmers are able to complete the claim process on their own, hire an attorney of their choice, or retain one of the plaintiffs’ executive committee firms to assist with putting together the claim form and supporting documentation.
