Early Wednesday afternoon, the Environmental Protection Agency placed its seal of approval for over-the-top use of dicamba herbicide in soybeans and cotton. The dicamba-tolerant trait in soybeans and cotton have been approved since 2015, and the herbicide approval means farmers can use the system as intended.

XtendiMax herbicide with VaporGrip technology will be the first approved herbicide that can legally be used in the system.

“We’re excited that the EPA has followed through on its commitment to approve this technology,” says Kyel Richard, product communications lead with Monsanto. “We’ve heard a lot of excitement from our growers.”

The company anticipates the seed technology will reach 15 million soybean acres and 3 million cotton acres on its seed brands alone. The technology is also licensed to more than 100 additional brands.
