The University of Missouri has issued an updated report on the off-target application of dicamba. This report says nearly 400,000 acres of soybeans nationwide have been injured by dicamba this year. That includes 150,000 acres in Illinois, 100,000 acres in Arkansas and Mississippi and 25,000 acres in Missouri. There are no reports of dicamba-injured soybeans in Minnesota, North Dakota or South Dakota. The application deadline ended this past week in Minnesota, but the Xtend soybeans can still be sprayed until the end of the month in the Dakotas.
