BISMARCK – The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) has received notification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that they have ordered the cancellation of the registrations for Xtendimax, FeXapan and Engenia, products used in over-the-top applications on Dicamba-tolerant soybeans.
“At the direction of the EPA we have canceled our state registrations of these products, which prohibits any further sale of them,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “However, EPA provides for the use of any product that had already been purchased prior to the cancellation as long as all label requirements are followed. This means that growers or commercial applicators may use existing stocks that were in their possession before the cancellation.”
The state 24c Special Local Needs label still applies and directs that no applications may be made after June 30 or after the first bloom (R1 growth phase), whichever comes first.
The cancellation notice may be found at https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-06/documents/final_cancellation_order_for_three_dicamba_products.pdf.
