Dicamba Stewardship Message

Monsanto has incorporated the following dicamba stewardship message in a variety of materials, including on or in product seed packaging and in stewardship, educational, and sales literature for Roundup Ready 2 XtendTM soybean.  This information has been distributed to growers, retailers, seed dealers, and other stakeholders.

DO NOT APPLY DICAMBA HERBICIDE IN-CROP TO ROUNDUP READY 2 XTEND™ SOYBEANS IN 2016 unless you use a dicamba herbicide product that is specifically labeled for that use in the location where you intend to make the application.  While no in-crop use of dicamba is currently approved, some dicamba products may be labeled for weed control prior to planting a crop and subject to minimum plant back restrictions.  IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW TO MAKE AN IN-CROP APPLICATION OF ANY DICAMBA HERBICIDE PRODUCT ON Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ Soybeans, OR ANY OTHER PESTICIDE APPLICATION, UNLESS THE PRODUCT LABELING SPECIFICALLY AUTHORIZES THE USE. Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for IN-CROP USE WITH Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ Soybeans and follow all pesticide product labeling.
