MFA Incorporated has announced updated internal policies for the sale and use of dicamba herbicides for the 2018 growing season.
MFA has launched an intensive scouting protocol to track soybean growth and provide timely information to applicators about crop progress. A network of "sentinel plots" has been established, representing the average planting dates and maturity ranges of soybeans in different regions of MFA's service territory. Reports will be sent to MFA employees each week with notes about maturity and potential cutoff dates for spraying dicamba.
MFA’s sentinel plot scouting protocol to track soybean growth shows plant growth at or quickly approaching R1 in all geographies MFA serves, including southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma. The Missouri Department of Agriculture cutoff for spraying ENGENIA, XTENDIMAX and FEXAPAN in dicamba-tolerant soybeans and dicamba-tolerant cotton is July 15. All MFA and AGChoice locations will cease spraying these products for the remainder of the season on the cutoff date, July 15.
