Effect of formulation and environment on dicamba volatility

In Webinar 1 from our two-part webinar series ‘Summer spray season challenges’, we hear from Dr Tom Mueller, from the University of Tennessee.

Post application of dicamba on triple stack GM crops has been a success for weed control of glyphosate-resistant weeds in the US, including Palmer amaranth. However, many adjacent areas were affected in 2016 (all illegal use) and 2017 (some illegal, mostly legal applications).

In the below webinar recording, Dr Tom Mueller presents the most recent findings on dicamba behaviour under field conditions and offers some parallels for Australian growers to consider with regard to 2,4-D behaviour and volatility. Check it out below!
