There have been reports from Arkansas and Missouri of dicamba injury to sensitive plants. The new formulations of dicamba were developed to reduce volatility and the labels/websites have guidelines on application techniques to minimize drift. However, none of these strategies will eliminate all potential off-target movement. If you are considering use of dicamba be sure to read and follow the label; and most importantly use common sense. Don’t just consider “can I spray it” but give serious thought to “should I spray it”.
