Kugler’s KQ-XRN and KS2075 have been approved by the EPA for use as a carrier for Engenia herbicide from BASF and XtendiMax with VaporGrip technology from Monsanto. 

Both are restricted-use dicamba herbicide products labeled for dicamba-tolerant crops that have been formulated to reduce dicamba drift and volatilization. 

While Kugler KQ-XRN is a proprietary nitrogen (28-0-0) formulation with 72% slow release nitrogen, KS2075 provides a balance of quick release nitrogen for initial green up and 50% slow release nitrogen for continuous, steady feeding, along with potassium and sulfur. 

Kugler KQ-XRN is a delivery system for crop protection chemicals in foliar applications, due to its unique “stickiness” that keeps it on plant leaves for weeks. 

“With proper application, both new dicamba formulations have the potential to deliver the kind of effective, on-target solution growers have been looking for to control tough, glyphosate-resistant weeds like Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, velvetleaf, morningglory and giant ragweed,” says John Kugler, co-president of Kugler Company. 

“When combined in a tank mix with KQ-XRN or KS2075, the new dicamba formulations hold even tighter; plus the crop is being provided with vital nutrients at critical growth stages, while you address threats to your crop,” Kugler says.
