New Dicamba label updates

New Dicamba label updates

Weed management has definitely been a challenge in the last several years, not only because of resistance, but of label changes and restrictions.

The much awaited announcement from EPA for the approval of three Dicamba formulations for XtendiMax, Engenia, and Tavium was done on October 27, 2020. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved these three dicamba formulations for over-the-top use effective starting in 2021 for five years or until 2025.

The herbicide is labeled for use in soybeans and cotton with the trait that confers tolerance to dicamba. According to an EPA administrator, a five-year registration, which was done, is typical for pesticides, instead of a two-year like dicamba has experienced in the past, because EPA had more data to base this decision upon.

EPA provided the following changes to the herbicide labels. These changes, and all label instructions, must be followed for legal use:

• Downwind buffer of 240' is required and a buffer of 310' required where listed species are located. • Over-the-top application
