Dicamba Herbicide Updates

Dicamba containing herbicides, including formulations such as XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology (EPA Reg. No. 524-617), Engenia Herbicide (EPA Reg. No. 7969-345), FeXapan Herbicide Plus VaporGrip Technology (EPA Reg. No. 352-913), and Tavium Plus VaporGrip Technology (EPA Reg. No. 100-1623) have been in the news and under review by state and federal pesticide regulators since 2017, based on excessively high numbers of off-target movement (drift and volatilization) complaints.
