[Listen] Dicambia Legal In Minnesota But?
Late Tuesday afternoon I received an email from David Key the Research Director for the Minnesota Soybean Growers about soybean farmers using the dicambia products Engenia, XtendiMax and FeXapan. Late last week were told because a Federal Court in California vacated the label it was illegal to apply those products in Minnesota. Early this week we found out we could apply them in Minnesota but there are some additional requirements farmers need to be aware of.
The dicambia products can be applied following all the requirements on the vacated label if the dicambia is on your farm or at your retailer. If you are a little short you may not be able to get any more dicambia. If it was at the Coop or retailer on July 3, 2020 they could sell it to you. However, they cannot get any more from the chemical company or bring it in to Minnesota from another state.
Another important point is by August 1, 2020 it is illegal to even have those dicambia products in your possession on the farm! Click on the link below and listen to Research Director David Key talk about the dicambia products. Also, it would be a good idea to talk with your retailer and go to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture website and read their "Guidance on Three Cancelled Dicambia Products."
