Five Requirements to Know before Purchase and Use of Engenia, Xtendimax and Fexapan
The Missouri Department of Agriculture issued 24c Special Local Need labeling of Engenia, Xtendimax, and Fexapan in order to minimize the potential for off-target movement of dicamba, the active ingredient. 24c labeling is in addition to the full Section 3 federal label for these products. A certified applicator must possess and read both labels. Engenia, Xtendimax, and Fexapan are the only registered products for dicamba-tolerant soybeans and dicamba-tolerant cotton. This information is taken from the Department of Agriculture’s website with the addition of training information from University of Missouri Extension.
