The Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System is an advanced weed management system in the fight against resistant and tough-to-control weeds in soybeans and cotton. With advanced dicamba- and glyphosate-tolerant traits in soybean (Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans), and dicamba-, glyphosate-, and glufosinate-tolerant traits in cotton (XtendFlex® technology), the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System can help maximize weed control and yield potential.
We are excited to announce we have received approval for certain glyphosate tank-mixes with XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology. The following products containing potassium salt (e.g. K Salt) formulations of glyphosate are listed on www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com as approved tank-mix products:
Approved glyphosate products will be limited to a maximum use rate of 32 fl oz per acre for each application when tank-mixed with XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology for in-crop use with Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans and cotton with XtendFlex® technology. This maximum use rate for glyphosate is consistent with expert recommendations for effective weed management within Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions. In addition, the listed glyphosate options will require the use of SPECIFIC approved drift reducing adjuvants (DRAs) when tank-mixed with XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology (see website for details).
Monsanto believes that tank mixes of dicamba with potassium salt formulations of glyphosate have lower volatility potential than tank mixes with IPA and DMA salts of glyphosate based on humidome testing via published ASTM methodology. For this reason, Monsanto plans to include only glyphosate products containing potassium salt of glyphosate as approved tank mix products with XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology to the website at this time.
We have also added two additional approved drift reducing adjuvants, AG16098 (Winfield United) and Capsule™ (Rosen’s Inc.), providing additional DRA options along with the previously approved product Intact™ (Precision Laboratories, LLC). As you are aware, SPECIFIC DRAs are required for certain products specified on the tank mix website. Monsanto supports enabling flexibility for growers to tank mix the most appropriate combinations for the best weed management recommendations specific to each grower’s field.
As a reminder, only after tank-mix products and/or nozzles are listed on the established tank-mix website are they considered approved and lawful to use or recommend as stated on product labels. All approved tank-mix products and nozzles for XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology are listed on: www.xtendimaxapplicationrequirements.com.
By combining innovative trait technologies and herbicide options, the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System can help you maximize weed control and increase yield potential. Tables 1 and 2 provide herbicide recommendations for Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and cotton with XtendFlex Technology.
To assist in weed resistance management, growers should scout fields after herbicide applications to detect weed escapes or shifts in weed species. Report any incidence of non-performance of this product to your Monsanto retailer, representative, or call 1-844-RRXTEND.
