On March 14, 2024, Corteva Agriscience LLC filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of 2, 4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic (2, 4-D) acid from China and India.

2, 4-D is the active ingredient in many products used in the United States and throughout the world as an herbicide to kill weeds on land and in water.

Identified importers include:

  • Helena Industries LLC (China)
  • Nufarm Americas Inc. (China)
  • PBI-Gordon Corporation (China)
  • Gharda Chemicals (India)
  • Atul USA, Inc. (India)

The full list of identified exporters and producers can be viewed here.

The alleged dumping margins are:

  • China: 143.73%
  • India: 62.66%

The proposed scope language includes the 2, 4-D component of any derivative products of 2, 4-D including amine salt and ester forms.

The Commerce Department will determine whether to initiate the investigations within 20 days. The United States International Trade Court (USITC) will reach a preliminary determination of material injury or threat of material injury within 45 days. Final determinations will likely occur late 2024.

As with any proceeding, participation is very important to protect your rights. We urge anyone that imports 2, 4-D to pay close attention to this case to ensure that all appropriate steps are taken to mitigate any damage.
