Dicamba Application Deadline Approaches in South Dakota
South Dakota Ag Connection - 06/09/2023

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources issued a reminder that the deadline for dicamba application is approaching.

The herbicide, commonly sprayed over-the-top of genetically engineered soybeans, cannot be used after June 20.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved labelling amendments in February. The amendments aim to minimize potential harm from dicamba. They were proposed by dicamba product registrants who consulted with the state’s Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources and agriculture industry stakeholders.

Dicamba use is now restricted to earlier in the season in an effort to reduce the risk of it drifting off site, according to the South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Bayer CropScience’s Xtendimax plus VaporGrip Technology, BASF’s Engenia Herbicde and Syngenta Crop Protection’s Tavium plus VaporGrip Technology are among affected products.
