Research on the Impact of Dicamba Micro-Rates on Non Dicamba-Tolerant Soybeans

January 10, 2018
Research at the university's Haskell Ag Lab at Concord in 2016 and 2017 studied the effects of microrates of two dicamba products applied at one of three soybean growth stages. The trials showed that non-dicamba tolerant soybeans were sensitive to even very low micro-rates of Engenia and XtendiMax; response varied according to amount and growth stage, with exposure at later stages having less effect.

Dicamba injury
In Figure 1a the field on the right, with heavier crop residue, shows dicamba-tolerant soybeans that had been sprayed with new generation dicamba. The field on the left, non-dicamba-tolerant soybeans planted side-by-side without a buffer, shows symptoms of injury caused by dicamba, the consequences of spray drift or volatilization. Figure 1b illustrates how dicamba affects newer growth more than older leaves. (Photos by Tim Creger, Nebraska Department of Agriculture)

Spraying the New Phenoxy Herbicide Formulations in Xtend and Enlist Soybeans Will Present Challenges

May 11, 2017
The new phenoxy herbicide formulations, including Enlist Duo™ (Dow), XtendiMax® (Monsanto), Engenia™ (BASF), and FeXapan™ (DuPont), offer growers new management options along with new application requirements. To alleviate problems related to applying new phenoxy herbicide formulations in soybeans as well as to increase herbicide performance, manufacturers have established application requirements. Here we discuss some of the key application factors to consider.
