New dicamba labels have interesting highlights you need to know

EPA recently approved the first federal labels of dicamba for use on dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybeans. Here are a few interesting highlights from the dicamba labels.

Environmental Protection Agency recently approved the first federal labels of dicamba for use on dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybeans.  

A few interesting highlights from the dicamba labels include: 

  1. Xtendimax with VaporGrip Technology can ONLY be tank-mixed with products that have been tested and found not to adversely affect off-site movement potential. A list of those products can be found at www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com
  2. NO tank-mixes with AMS or UAN. These will increase formulation volatility.
  3. Only 1 nozzle type is permitted (TTI11004 with 63 PSI max)
  4. Must be applied in a minimum of 10 GPA
  5. Maximum ground speed is 15 MPH
  6. Maximum boom height of 24 inches above target pest or crop canopy
  7. Can only be applied when winds are between 3 MPH and 15 MPH (3 MPH to 10 MPH is optimum).
  8. Must maintain a 110 to 220 foot downwind buffer, depending upon rate, between the last treated row and the closest downwind field edge.
  9. A copy of the cotton label can be viewed here.
  10. A copy of the soybean label can be viewed here.
  11. Individual state labels might be slightly different. Check with local experts for latest information/label updates.
