BISMARCK – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an order today allowing existing stocks of over-the-top Dicamba to be used in 2024. Existing stocks refers to those stocks of previously registered pesticide products that are currently in the United States and were packaged, labeled, and released for shipment prior to Feb. 6, 2024.

Distributors, retailers and others who were in possession of these products on Feb. 6 may sell and distribute the over-the-top Dicamba until the end-use date in their state.

“We are pleased with the action from the EPA,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “It provides certainty to the producers who had already made planting decisions for 2024.”

A Feb. 6 ruling by the U.S. District Court of Arizona in Tucson had vacated the 2020 registrations for Bayer Xtendimax, BASF Engenia and Syngenta Tavium used in over-the-top applications on Dicamba-tolerant soybeans.
