Corteva Agriscience will stop selling FeXapan herbicide this year. NDSU Extension Weed Specialist Joe Ikley says the lack of federal approval for product could be one reason why the company made the decision. “At this point, they’d have to go through a state approval process. It’s probably not worth it at this point to go forward with this procedure. Probably for the market share they were getting and company-wise, they had Enlist, I think it’s just a company decision. I don’t think this is a dicamba domino to fall.” To control tough weeds like kochia in western North Dakota, Ikley says farmers should get into fields as soon as the weed starts popping up. “We don’t want to skimp on carrier volume and you may need something more aggressive for a burndown program.”
