Harmful Insecticide

HPI products, incorporation has been told to stop distributing Warthog two E-C. The chemical reportedly damaged 8,000 acres of soybeans near Beattie, Kansas, just South of the Nebraska State line. The Kansas department of agriculture recieved many complaints from farmers near Beattie who say the frontier chemical, incorporation, a dealership in Beattie, purchased and used the insecticide. Investgators traced the batch back to HPI products in St. Joseph. The Missouri department of agriculture found the Warthog two E-C to be tainted with another Herbicide, Dicamba, which is used to control broadleaf weeds and can be harmful to soybeans. Besides the stop sale in Missouri, the Kansas department of agriculture has issued a stop sale, use, and removal order on Warthog two E-C that was sold at frontier chemical in Beattie, Kansas.
