EPA Approves DuPont’s FeXapan Dicamba Herbicide
DuPont has received EPA registration for FeXapan herbicide plus VaporGrip Technology, a low-volatility dicamba formulation for use on Roundup Ready XtendFlex cotton and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans.
The new herbicide is part of a complete weed-control solution that may be applied in-crop over cotton and soybean varieties carrying traits that provide tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate herbicides.
Growers will be able to use FeXapan in 2017 to control herbicide-resistant weeds – including kochia, marestail and amaranth species – as part of a complete weed-control program that includes pre-emergence and postemergence herbicide applications with multiple herbicide modes of action, as well as crop rotation and cultural practices that manage weed growth and weed seed production.
FeXapan employs a new formulation of dicamba that offers a significant reduction in volatility potential than conventional dicamba herbicides, which helps minimize off-target movement when used according to label guidelines.
When used with Pioneer brand soybeans with the Roundup Ready 2 Yield Xtend trait, FeXapan will provide a cost-effective option for managing weeds. The integrated seed and herbicide program is designed to work together to increase efficiency and protect yield.
A list of approved tank-mix partners for FeXapan and state registrations can be found online, as well as stewardship training to promote best management practices for product use and extended product life.
FeXapan is included in DuPont’s TruChoice rewards program, offering local agronomy expertise and individualized crop protection solutions to maximize economic return on every acre.
