On October 31, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that registrations for Engenia, Xtendimax and FeXapan herbicides were extended through December 20, 2020. This also marks the third time in the last three years that EPA revised the use directions on these labels. Most of the label revisions have been the result of record numbers of off-target movement (drift) complaints filed in major soybean producing states in 2017 and 2018. The following frequently asked questions and answers have been developed by the Office of Indiana State Chemist (OISC) to address many of the issues that have been raised over the last several years, regarding legal use of agricultural dicamba-containing products in Indiana. Updates to these FAQs are posted at https://www.oisc.purdue.edu/pesticide/dicamba.html
