Missouri Extends Dicamba Cutoff for Southeast Counties
The Missouri Department of Agriculture has extended the cutoff date to June 10 for use of the dicamba products FeXapan, XtendiMax and Engenia for counties in Southeast Missouri.
The original cutoff date for use of these products according to the state’s 24c Special Local Need labels was June 1. The change is for Dunklin, Pemiscot, New Madrid, Stoddard, Scott, Mississippi, Butler, Ripley, Bollinger and Cape Girardeau counties only.
In a statement announcing the change, Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn said, “We have been diligently monitoring weather to determine what, if any, adjustments need to be made to the cutoff dates, as we have said we would from the beginning. Because of the wet, cold spring, planting has been delayed. This extension will give farmers extra days to use these products prior to the cutoff date.”
All other 24c Special Local Need label restrictions for the state remain the same. The cutoff date for all other Missouri counties is still July 15, 2018. After the cutoff dates, no applications (burndown, preplant, preemergence and postemergence) may be made.
