Dicamba Update – March 2016

The following statement has been prepared and released by Monsanto’s stewardship department.

At this time, no dicamba formulation is registered for in-crop use in Bollgard II XtendFlex cotton or Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans.

Monsanto has incorporated the following dicamba stewardship message in a variety of materials including on or in product seed packaging and in stewardship, educational and sales literature for Roundup Ready 2 xtendtm soybean and Bollgard II® xtendflex® cotton.  This information has been distributed to growers, retailers, seed dealers and other stakeholders.

Soybeans:  Do not apply dicamba herbicide in-crop to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans in 2016 unless you use a dicamba herbicide product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application.  While no in-crop use of dicamba is currently approved, some dicamba products may be labeled for weed control prior to planting a crop and subject to minimum plant back restrictions.  It is a violation of federal and state law to make an in-crop application of any dicamba herbicide product on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans, or any other pesticide application, unless the product labeling specifically authorizes the use. Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ Soybeans and follow all pesticide product labeling.

Cotton:  Do not apply dicamba herbicide in-crop to Bollgard II XtendFlex or Xtendflex cotton in 2016 unless you use a dicamba herbicide product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application.
