For weed control in asparagus, conservation reserve programs, corn, cotton, fallow croplands, farmstead (noncropland), sorghum, grass grown for seed, hay, proso millet, pasture, rangeland, small grains, soybean, sugarcane, and turf
Dicamba XP herbicide is formulated as a water-dispersible granule intended for use in a spray to control and suppress many
annual, biennial, and perennial broadleaf weeds, as well as woody brush and vines listed in Table 1. Dicamba XP herbicide
may be used for control of these weeds in asparagus, corn, cotton, conservation reserve programs, fallow cropland, grass grown
for seed, hay, proso millet, pasture, rangeland, farmstead (noncropland), small grains, sorghum, soybeans, sugarcane, and turf.
Mode of Action
Dicamba XP herbicide is readily absorbed by plants through shoot and root uptake, translocates throughout the plant’s
system, and accumulates in areas of active growth.
Dicamba XP herbicide interferes with the plant’s growth hormones (auxins) resulting in death of many broadleaf weeds.
Although Dicamba XP herbicide has a low probability of selecting for resistant weed biotypes, tank mixes and rotation with
herbicides possessing other modes of action are recommended to avoid weed resistance.
The following directions apply to all uses of Dicamba XP herbicide. Additional precautions and restrictions will be found in
each specific use section. DO NOT treat irrigation ditches or water used for crop irrigation or domestic uses.
DO NOT apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
MIXING AND APPLICATION
UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED UNDER THE INDIVIDUAL USE HEADINGS OF THIS LABEL, THE FOLLOWING
DIRECTIONS APPLY TO ALL CROP AND NONCROP USES OF DICAMBA XP HERBICIDE. REFER TO
INDIVIDUAL USE SECTIONS FOR ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS, RESTRICTIONS, APPLICATION RATES AND
AGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTS
Use this product only in accordance with its labeling and with the Worker Protection Standard, 40 CFR Part 170. This
standard contains requirements for the protection of agricultural workers on farms, forests, nurseries, and greenhouses,
and handlers of agricultural pesticides. It contains requirements for training, decontamination, notification, and
emergency assistance. It also contains specific instructions and exceptions pertaining to the statements on this label
about personal protective equipment (PPE) and restricted-entry interval. The requirements in this box only apply to uses
of this product that are covered by the Worker Protection Standard.
DO NOT enter or allow worker entry into treated areas during the restricted entry interval (REI) of 24 hours.
EXCEPTION: If the product is soil injected or soil incorporated, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain
circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves
contact with anything that has been treated, such as plants, soil, or water is:
• Coveralls worn over short-sleeve shirt and short pants
• Chemical-resistant footwear plus socks
• Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material
• Chemical-resistant headgear for overhead exposure
• Protective eyewear
NONAGRICULTURAL USE REQUIREMENTS
The requirements in this box apply to uses of this product that are NOT within the scope of the Worker Protection
Standard for agricultural pesticides (40 CFR Part 170). The WPS applies when this product is used to produce
agricultural plants on farms, forests, nurseries, or greenhouses. DO NOT enter or allow others to enter until sprays have
DuPont Dicamba XP herbicide is a water-dispersible formulation that can be applied using water or sprayable fluid
fertilizer as the carrier. If a fluid fertilizer is to be used, a compatibility test (see COMPATIBILITY TEST for Mix
Components) should be made prior to tank mixing.
Ground or aerial application equipment which will give good spray coverage of weed foliage should be used. HOWEVER,
DO NOT USE AERIAL APPLICATION EQUIPMENT IF SPRAY PARTICLES CAN BE CARRIED BY WIND
INTO AREAS WHERE SENSITIVE CROPS OR PLANTS ARE GROWING.
Apply 3 to 50 gallons of diluted spray per treated acre when using ground application equipment, or 2 to 10 gallons of diluted
spray per treated acre when using aerial application equipment. Use the higher level of the listed spray volumes when treating
dense or tall vegetation. Use coarse sprays.
Select nozzles designed to produce minimal amounts of fine spray particles. Spray with nozzles as close to the weeds as is
practical for good weed coverage.
Dicamba XP herbicide must not be applied during periods of gusty wind or when wind is in excess of 15 mph as uneven spray
coverage may occur.
Avoid disturbing (e.g. cultivating or mowing) treated areas for at least 7 days following application.
Cleaning Spray Equipment
Clean application equipment thoroughly by using a strong detergent or commercial sprayer cleaner, according to the
manufacturer’s directions, and then triple rinsing the equipment before and after applying this product.
Dicamba XP herbicide can be applied to actively growing weeds as aerial, broadcast, band, or spot spray applications
using water or sprayable fertilizer as a carrier. For Dicamba XP herbicide application rates for control or suppression by
weed type and growth stage see Table 2. For crop-specific application timing and other details, refer to Crop-specific
Information. To avoid uneven spray coverage, Dicamba XP herbicide must not be applied during periods of gusty wind
or when wind is in excess of 15 mph. Avoid off-target movement. Use extreme care when applying Dicamba XP
herbicide to prevent injury to desirable plants and shrubs.
DO NOT treat areas where either possible downward movement into the soil or surface washing may cause contact of
Dicamba XP herbicide with the roots of desirable plants such as trees and shrubs.
To avoid injury to desirable plants, equipment used to apply Dicamba XP herbicide should be thoroughly cleaned (see
procedure in Cleaning Spray Equipment) before reusing to apply any other chemicals.
All crop uses of Dicamba XP herbicide are intended for a normal growing interval between planting and harvest. No crop
rotation restrictions exist if normal harvest of treated crop has occurred. If this interval is shortened, such as in cover crops
that will be plowed under, DO NOT follow up with the planting of a sensitive crop.
Crops growing under stress conditions such as drought, poor fertility, or foliar damage due to hail, wind or insects, can
exhibit various injury symptoms that may be more pronounced if herbicides are applied.
Consult your local or state authorities for possible application restrictions and advice concerning these and other special
local use situations. Tank mix directions are for use only in states where the tank mix product and application site are
DO NOT cultivate within 7 days after applying Dicamba XP herbicide.
