Abstract/Contents:"Dicamba has been a highly effective weed management tool for nearly 50 years. It is the fifth most widely used herbicide in the United States with more than 25 million acres of crops including corn, wheat, pasture, and turf treated annually. Dicamba was discovered in 1958 and first registered as Banvel® herbicide for broadleaf control in turf. Registration of dicamba products for use in corn, sorghum, small grains, and pasture soon followed in 1964 through 1966. Since then dicamba chemistry has evolved over time with the development of formulations such as Marksman®, Clarity®, Distinct®, and Status® herbicides. These dicamba formulations effectively control or suppress over 190 broadleaf weeds including many problematic weed species such as ragweed (Ambrosia spp.), common cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium), common lambsquarters (Chenopodium album), morningglory (Ipomoea spp.), pigweed (Amaranthus spp.), and horseweed (Conyza canadensis). Currently, a next generation dicamba formulation is in development that reduces potential volatility more than the improvement achieved with Clarity® over Banvel®. The next generation of dicamba (EXP; not a registered product) demonstrates similar efficacy as past generations of dicamba when applied postemergence and preemergence. Field trial results show that the EXP formulation and Clarity® provide similar control of broadleaf weeds including glyphosate-resistant common waterhemp and Palmer amaranth when applied postemergence in corn. Research results also show that the combination of dicamba with residual herbicides improves broadleaf weed control compared to residual herbicides alone. The dicamba EXP formulation exhibits a wide-spectrum of broadleaf weed control similar to Clarity® with the additional benefit of even lower volatility. Dicamba will be an important component for integrated weed management systems that include herbicides with additional mechanisms of action, residual herbicides, and agronomic practices that favor early season weed control and crop competition."
