Counties with additional protection measures for endangered species

The updated Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) label for XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, a restricted use pesticide, requires additional protection measures in 289 specific counties. In these specific counties, a 310-foot in-field wind-directional spray-drift buffer and a 57-foot omnidirectional in-field buffer are required to protect federally listed threatened and endangered species. Nonsensitive areas, defined below, may be included as part of the buffer.

To protect federally listed threatened and endangered species, both a 310-foot in-field wind-directional spray-drift buffer and a 57-foot omnidirectional in-field buffer are required. If applying to dicamba-tolerant soybeans with a qualified hooded sprayer, both a 240-foot in-field wind-directional spray-drift buffer and a 57-foot omnidirectional in-field buffer are required to protect federally listed threatened and endangered species. Please see the label for a link to the website(s) with your product’s qualified hooded sprayers. The following areas may be included in the buffer distance composition when directly adjacent to the treated field edges:

  • Roads, paved or gravel surfaces, mowed grassy areas adjacent to the field, and areas of bare ground from recent plowing or grading that are contiguous with the treated field
  • Planted agricultural fields containing dicamba-resistant plantings of cotton and soybeans
  • Areas covered by the footprint of a building, silo, or other manmade structure with walls and/or roof
