A University of Tennessee extension
agronomist says reported dicamba drift issues in Tennessee have declined this
year. “The biggest reason is we don’t have a lot of beans in harm’s way
anymore because they’re all Xtend,” he says.
Larry Steckel tells Brownfield more
than 95 percent of soybean acres in Tennessee and about 85 percent of cotton
acres are dicamba tolerant.
But, he says, they’re starting to see
some weed control issues.
