sales in cotton field
Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided the final stamp of approval needed for use of XtendiMax™ herbicide with VaporGrip™ Technology in crop with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans and Bollgard II® XtendFlex® cotton. This approval means that you can now take full advantage of the next-generation soybean technology system.
What has been approved:
  • XtendiMax™ herbicide with VaporGrip™ Technology* has received EPA approval for use in conjunction with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans. The system will include Roundup Ready Xtend® soybeans, the industry’s first biotech product with tolerance to dicamba and glyphosate herbicides. 41 soybean varieties are available through WinField United’s CROPLAN® brand, ranging in maturity from 0.0 to 6.9.
Double Check Labels
Some of the tank-mix products you’re accustomed to using may no longer comply with this cropping system, so double check the label. We want to ensure you are armed with all the necessary information, insights and recommendations so applications are on-label, responsible and effective.

We will share additional information on the chemistries and adjuvants related to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans and other newly-available cropping systems as our research progresses.

Contact your local retailer to learn more about what this technology could mean for your operation.

* Pending state approvals of XtendiMax™ with VaporGrip™ Technology.
ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON PESTICIDE LABELING. IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAW to use any pesticide product other than in accordance with its labeling.  NOT ALL formulations of dicamba or glyphosate are approved for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans, Bollgard II® XtendFlex® or XtendFlex® cotton.  ONLY USE FORMULATIONS THAT ARE SPECIFICALLY LABELED FOR SUCH USES AND APPROVED FOR SUCH USE IN THE STATE OF APPLICATION.  Contact the U.S. EPA and your state pesticide regulatory agency with any questions about the approval status of dicamba herbicide products for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans, Bollgard II® XtendFlex® or XtendFlex® cotton.
Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Bollgard II® XtendFlex® cotton contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, dicamba and glufosinate. Glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate. Dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Glufosinate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glufosinate.  Contact your Monsanto dealer or refer to Monsanto’s Technology Use Guide for recommended weed control programs.
