Herbicide update: 2020 Dicamba Label Restrictions for Illinois

10/15/2019
Herbicide update: 2020 Dicamba Label Restrictions for Illinois

The Illinois Department of Agriculture has announced additional label restrictions for the use of approved dicamba formulations in dicamba-tolerant soybeans for the 2020 growing season. This will allow for over-the top use of dicamba in dicamba-tolerant soybeans to manage tough to control weeds such as waterhemp and marestail. With the current federal label come some additional restrictions for the upcoming growing season to follow with a new 24 (c) label. The new label restrictions will ensure a safe and effective application that addresses concerns that some may have faced under the former label.The changes include:

  • These products are not to be applied if the air temperature in the field at the time of application is over 85 degrees Fahrenheit OR if the National Weather Service has forecasted that the high temperature for the nearest available location for the day of application exceeds 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • These products are not to be applied after June 20, 2020.

These restrictions are in addition to the former federal label restrictions that were in place last growing season.

The re-registration of the approved dicamba formulations for over-the-top use in dicamba-tolerant soybeans ensures that this tool remains viable to manage tough to control weeds. Contact your local Crop Specialist with any questions regarding these label changes or to purchase dicamba-tolerant soybeans.
