After months of waiting, dicamba has been given the green light by the federal government. BASF Agricultural Solutions Vice President Scott Kay says this news will help farmers prepare for 2021. “I think this is really helpful to build that confidence when making that trait selection.” To reduce the potential for off-target movement, the label for Engenia has been simplified. “The label has a few enhancements,” said Kay. “One is a pH buffering adjuvant that is now required. BASF is going to provide one that is new and approved for the system called Sentris.” Kay is pleased farmers will continue to have this tool to deal with weed resistance.
