Missouri extends dicamba deadline for southeast counties

The Missouri Department of Agriculture has announced a change to the 24c Special Local Need labels for FeXapan, XtendiMax and Engenia.

The cutoff date for Dunklin, Pemiscot, New Madrid, Stoddard, Scott, Mississippi, Butler, Ripley, Bollinger and Cape Girardeau has been extended to June 10. The original cutoff date was set for June 1.

“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,” said Director of Agriculture Chris Chinn.

“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 remain the same. The cutoff date for all other Missouri counties is still July 15.

After the cutoff dates, no applications (burndown, preplant, pre-emergence and postemergence) may be made.
