Yes, the label is pretty restrictive, and here’s one last thing I would encourage you to do in addition to what the label says. Only spray when the wind will be blowing away from neighboring sensitive crops for 48 hours straight. If the wind is constantly blowing away from the sensitive crop during the peak period we worry about for volatility, everything should be fine. Hopefully, you only have a few fields where there is a lot of risk with a crop next door, and those are the fields where you just have to really pick the right time to spray.
I know all this makes spraying more inconvenient, but it is important to reduce drift and volatility if we want to keep dicamba on the market. Within the next couple of years, we expect all the Xtend beans to switch over to XtendFlex, which will allow you to spray Liberty post-emerge. Since Liberty has no volatility risk and very little drift risk, it is a great alternative.
If you will be spraying dicamba in-crop this year, please spray with caution and follow the new labeled guidelines.
