Looking Forward to 2018

On October 13, 2017, the EPA announced enhancements to our XtendiMax® with VaporGrip® Technology product label that will help farmers have even more success with the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System in 2018. The updates, which were voluntarily proposed by Monsanto and are supported by the EPA, include:

  • Now designated as a Restricted Use Pesticide (RUP)
  • Mandatory annual applicator training
  • Expanded record keeping

We are taking a variety of steps to help our customers use this weed management system successfully in 2018. Monsanto's commitments include:

  • Tailoring our trainings based on 2017 learnings
  • Distributing spray nozzles at no cost
  • Setting up technical support call center
  • Developing spray app to help farmers avoid problematic weather conditions
  • Offering free flags to mark Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System fields
