BASF Crop Protection has applied for EPA certification of its new dicamba herbicide formulation, Engenia, for use with Monsanto’s dicamba-tolerant soybeans, BASF reports in a news release issued April 10. Engenia is reportedly able to control more than 100 broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth and waterhemp (both Amaranthus spp), marestail ( Conyza canadensis), velvetleaf ( Abutilon theophrasti), morning-glory ( Ipomoea spp) and giant ragweed ( Ambrosia trifida), BASF notes. The company chose the Engenia brand after a three-year collaboration with Monsanto on the development of new dicamba formulations. BASF expects EPA certification of Engenia in line with Monsanto’s planned introduction of dicamba-tolerant soybeans in 2014.
