Dicamba Label Clarifications

Spraying soybeans

We have received questions about the use of dicamba after June 30, for control of weeds in wheat stubble and other situations.  The June 30 cutoff applies only to use of XtendiMax, Engenia, and Tavium in Xtend and XtendiFlex soybeans, which is the only labeled use for these products.  Current uses of other dicamba products are not affected by the June 30 cutoff, including fallow, pasture, small grain, etc, as long as label directions are followed.  We would of course encourage caution and common sense with regard to use of dicamba in hot weather, and near sensitive plants. 

Another subject – it’s not too late to scout fields for escaped water hemp plants and remove them prior to mature seed production.  We have been able to find mature seed but much of it is still immature.  For a primer on determining the presence of mature seed, check out this short video
