DuPont Crop Protection announced it has received federal approval from the EPA for use of DuPont FeXapan herbicide plus VaporGrip Technology on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and cotton. The new herbicide is part of a complete weed-control solution that may be applied in-crop over soybean and cotton varieties carrying traits that provide tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate herbicides.
Growers will be able to use FeXapan in 2017 to control herbicide-resistant weeds, including kochia, marestail and amaranth species, as part of a complete weed-control program that includes pre-emergence and post-emergence herbicide applications with multiple herbicide modes of action, as well as crop rotation and cultural practices that manage weed growth and weed seed production.
FeXapan employs a new formulation of dicamba that offers a significant reduction in volatility potential compared with conventional dicamba herbicides, which helps minimize off-target movement when used according to label guidelines.

As with any crop protection product, growers and applicators should follow best practices to avoid off-target contact when using FeXapan. DuPont has developed stewardship training to promote best management practices for FeXapan use and extended product life. For details, see FeXapan.dupont.com.
