State Ag Officials Approve Three Dicamba Brands
By Jeremy Ludemann
Officials with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture have approved the use of three different dicamba products for the 2018 growing season.
Engenia, Xtendimax with Vapor Grip technology, and Fexapan herbicides are now registered through December 20th of next year. 
The State will enforce guidelines within the federal Environmental Protection Agency's 2018 label. J.D. Farley is an ag program specialist with the Department of Agriculture. He says the EPA has added several restrictions to this year's label. One of them relates to wind speed.
Farley says training sessions will take place early next year. He says farmers cannot use dicamba after soybean plants have reached beginning bloom stage. 
Farley says state ag officials decided not to add more regulations on top of the EPA label. Other states have decided to do so.
