Bayer Applies for New Dicamba Label

A new chapter in the saga of dicamba herbicides began on Monday, March 11, as Bayer once again initiated the registration process with EPA for its product, XtendiMax, for use in dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton in 2025.
The move comes just more than a month after a federal court in Arizona vacated the 2020 registrations of three "over-the-top" dicamba products previously approved by EPA, including XtendiMax, BASF's Engenia and Syngenta's Tavium. The court's action led EPA to issue an existing stocks order for the 2024 season on Feb. 14. This allows use of the herbicides already distributed from the product registrants following application cutoff dates on the herbicides' previously approved labels. The 2020 registrations originally had allowed for labeled use through December 2025.
