Get To Know Your Dicamba Options

The dicamba approved for over-the-top use in soybeans and cotton isn't the Banvel or Clarity of old. Nor is it a generic product that could have a higher risk of drift and volatility. The "new" dicamba is marketed as three different branded products: Engenia, Fexapan and Xtendimax.

An additional, over-the-top dicamba option is coming soon to a retailer near you.

Syngenta will soon introduce Tavium Plus VaporGrip Technology for over-the-top use in soybeans and cotton. It's currently awaiting EPA approval.

Tavium is a premix of dicamba (WSSA group 4) and S-metolachor (WSSA group 15) to provide contact and residual control of ALS-, PPO- and glyphosate-resistant weeds. It can be applied from preplant through early post-emergence.
