Minnesota became the latest U.S. state on Tuesday to restrict controversial weed killers made by Monsanto Co and BASF SE that were linked to widespread crop damage, while Arkansas took a step back from imposing new limits. The United States has faced an agricultural crisis this year caused by new versions of the herbicides, which are based on a chemical known as dicamba. Farmers and weed experts say the products harm crops that cannot resist dicamba because the herbicides evaporate and drift away from where they are applied, a process known as volatilization.
Monsanto Co (MON.N) will give cash back to U.S. farmers who buy a weed killer that has been linked to widespread crop damage, offering an incentive to apply its product even as regulators in several U.S. states weigh restrictions on its use. The incentive to use XtendiMax with VaporGrip, a herbicide based on a chemical known as dicamba, could refund farmers over half the sticker price of the product in 2018 if they spray it on soybeans Monsanto engineered to resist the weed killer, according to company data. The United States faced an agricultural crisis this year caused by new formulations of dicamba-based herbicides, which farmers and weed experts say harmed crops because they evaporated and drifted away from where they were sprayed.

Missouri will limit the use of a weed killer made by BASF SE after farmers complained the chemical drifted and harmed their crops, following a move by Arkansas to prohibit sprayings next year of the herbicide and rival products. Missouri on Thursday banned sprayings of BASF's Engenia herbicide, which is based on a chemical known as dicamba, in 10 counties that had high numbers of complaints about crop damage, starting on June 1, 2018.
A weed killer blamed for damaging millions of acres of U.S. crops this summer did not reduce yields for most of the soybeans checked by BASF SE , which makes a version of the herbicide, the company said on Friday. BASF, the world's third-largest maker of crop chemicals, investigated 787 complaints involving soybeans that showed signs of damage linked to sprayings of the herbicide that contains a chemical known as dicamba, according to the company.
An Arkansas regulatory body voted on Wednesday to bar the use of a weed killer critical to Monsanto Co's seed sales for a second consecutive summer, ratcheting up a standoff after the company sued the state to prevent restrictions on the product. The Arkansas State Plant Board plans to prohibit sprayings of products containing a chemical known as dicamba between April 16 and Oct. 31, 2018, after an estimated 3.6 million acres of U.S. crops suffered damage linked to the herbicides this year. The United States has faced a weed-killer crisis this year caused by new versions of herbicides with dicamba, which farmers and weed experts say harm crops because they evaporate and drift away from where they are applied.
Bayer said it has agreed to sell parts of its crop-science business to rival BASF, a bid to assuage regulators as the German chemical conglomerate seeks approval for its $57 billion acquisition of U.S. ...
Bayer AG's plans to sell a portion of its crop science division will not include its Kansas City manufacturing facility, a company spokesman confirmed Friday. On Thursday evening, Bayer announced that it planned to offload its field crop seeds business and a portion of its herbicide business to German chemical company BASF SE for $7 billion. The Kansas City operation produces herbicides, fungicides and pesticides.
Bayer AG has a deal to sell off parts of a division to rival BASF SE to help partially refinance its $57 billion purchase of St. Louis-based Monsanto Co. and to calm regulators concerned about antitrust issues in the U.S. and the European Union. The Wall Street Journal reports that Germany-based Bayer plans to sell its crop seeds business, a portion of its Crop Science division, for $6.98 billion. Together, Bayer’s and Monsanto’s control of the market could put pressure on farmers that already face low crop prices, EU regulators have said.
BASF (BASFn.DE) has agreed to buy seed and herbicide businesses from Bayer (BAYGn.DE) for 5.9 billion euros (5.26 billion pounds)in cash, as Bayer tries to convince competition authorities to approve its planned acquisition of Monsanto (MON.N). BASF, the world's third-largest maker of crop chemicals, has so far avoided seed assets and instead pursued research into plant characteristics such as drought tolerance, which it sells or licenses out to seed developers.
