A federal court ruling banning a controversial herbicide is putting Wisconsin soybean farmers in a bind. Environmentalists rejoiced after a ban on weed preventer, dicamba, because of its dangers to plants when it drifts off-cite. Showing you different sides so you can decide, not everyone was pleased. Soybean farmers in Wisconsin, with just weeks to go before planting season, say they are now caught in a bind. The property was effective in keeping nasty weeds away and because of that may lose profit from it.
The state is home to 11-thousand soybean growers and across the country the ruling will affect farmland larger than the state of Nevada.
