Growers have the opportunity to use new technology in weed management this year. However, growers should be aware that they should follow the supplemental labels of Xtendimax with VaporGrip and Engenia. The federal labels do not contain the specific guidelines for using these products, whereas, the supplemental labels contain the information for use on soybeans.
In addition, Dr. Kevin Bradley, University of Missouri State Weed Scientist, will be in Maryville, Thursday, March 2 and will provide training on the use of this technology. The meeting is titled “Preparing for the Xtend Trait in 2017: Lesson Learned and Where do we go From Here.” The meeting will begin at 1 p.m. and the location is the lower level meeting room in the Nodaway County Administrative Center in Maryville.
If you have any questions, please contact Wayne Flanary, Regional Agronomist, University of Missouri Extension at 660-446-3724.
