This was a great post except for the first sentence. Everybody has the right to point out errors or state facts that they believe wholeheatedly to be true. I felt the previous info was inaccurate and I politely said so.

Yes it is called diglycloamine, not dicamba. Symantics.
But had you heard the story you would know that Sandoz had been looking at heavier molecules of the "dicamba" compound. This new compound weighs in at over 12 lbs per gallon. Small droplets have less chance of floating around when they're that heavy. Also isn't it amazing how active the molecule is? Just a few droplets floating onto an un suspecting plant can cause symptoms. They also where looking at another "similar" compound that would release its active ingredient like a slow release nitrogen. Soil applied, it might have been dropped from research. Also dicamba was originaly tested for grass control at higher rates in corn.

Politically correct or politically polite?

Dicamba or Diglycloamine? If your a broad leaf plant, your in trouble.
Sorry I upset you.
I guess we believe what we want to believe. Even at the expense of upsetting others.
Some say organic fertilizer must not be changed from its original form to be considered organic.
Some consider urea formaldehyde to be an organic fertilizer because it contains carbon.
Diglycloamine is "not" dicamba, just look at the spelling.
Compare weeds controlled and mode of action....
