Monsanto seeks US dicamba/glyphosate tests

The US EPA has notified receipt of an application from Monsanto for an experimental use permit (EUP) to test a herbicide, code-named M1751 (dicamba + glyphosate), on genetically modified dicamba- and glyphosate-tolerant soybeans and cotton. The tests would also cover non-dicamba-tolerant maize, soybeans and cotton. The EUP would cover 7,660 acres (3,100 ha) between February 2013 and May 2014. Monsanto has branded its glyphosate/dicamba herbicide formulation, Roundup Xtend ( Agrow No 635, p 20). It plans to test the herbicide on its dicamba-tolerant Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans on farms next year, with a launch planned for 2014.
