Dicamba Registration Decisions for 2019 – 2020 Seasons

By Matt Schoper - Agronomy Sales and Marketing Manager

The EPA extended registration of dicamba for an additional two years.  The bullet points are the changes made to the federal label:

  • Two-year registration (until December 20, 2020)
  • Only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top (those working under the supervision of a certified applicator may no longer make applications)
  • Prohibit over-the-tip application of dicamba on soybeans 45 days after planting
  • Applications will be allowed only 1 hour after sunrise to 2 before sunset
  • In counties where endangered species may exist, the downwind buffer will remain at 110 feet and there will be a new 57 foot buffer around other sides of the field (110 foot downwind buffer applies to all applications, not just in counties where endangered species may exist)
  • Clarify training period for 2019 and beyond, ensuring consistency across all products
  • Enhanced clean out instructions for the entire system
  • Enhanced label to improve applicator awareness on the impact of low pH’s on the potential volatility of dicamba
  • Label clean up and consistency to improve compliance and enforceability

State regulations have not been announced for the 2019 season.
