"The goal of the research was to duplicate labeled applications and determine if secondary movement contributes significantly to off-target movement of both formulations," explained Gared Shaffer, SDSU Extension Weeds Field Specialist. He added that although Fexapan is also labeled for post-application, it was not part of this study. The findings of this preliminary and on-going study showed a considerable portion of the total injury is attributable to secondary movement and the likelihood for some secondary movement of either product appeared high. There were no differences between formulations at any distance. Although the on-going research was conducted by university researchers in Arkansas, Indiana, Nebraska and Tennessee, the data matters to many South Dakota soybean Visit www.bro www.broadcasteronline.com www.broadcasteronline.com Visit our Web site at www.broadcasteronline.com www.bro growers. Of the total 170 total pesticide related investigations in 2017, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture had 117 cases related to dicamba. "To put this into perspective, in 2015 and 2016, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture had only 82 investigations each year dealing with pesticide complaints," Shaffer said. Research details The research was conducted by Dr. J.K. Norsworthy, G. Kruger, D. Reynolds, L. Steckel, K. Bradley and B. Young. In each study, small plots, between 2-3.5 acres in size, were set up to be sprayed with either Engenia or XtendiMax. Wind speed during application at each site was at or between the label requirements of 3 to 10 miles-per-hour at application. Sprayer speed was 8 miles-per-hour, spray volume was 10 gallonsper-acre. TTI 11003 type nozzles were used. Secondary movement is not affected by application but chemistry of herbicide. The preliminary research shows that application of Engenia and Xtendimax had the largest off-target damage to susceptible plants 20 feet away from plots, followed by 100 feet with the second most injury and 200 feet with the least in both primary plus secondary and secondary alone. www.broadcasteronline.com www.bro www.broadcasteronline.com www.bro Visit our Web site at www.broadcasteronline.com Visit www.bro Visit our Web site at www.broadcasteronline.com Visit www.bro ATTENTION: MBE/WBE/DBE CONTRACTORS B-Y Water District Chlorine & Carbon Dioxide Feed System Improvements Arrrrre you advertising in the Broadcaster?
