In response to the increasing problem of herbicide resistance in weeds, several agricultural seed and chemical companies have introduced new varieties of corn, soybean and cotton that are tolerant to the synthetic auxin herbicides 2,4-D or dicamba. For example, Dow AgroScience's Enlist trait confers tolerance to 2,4-D in corn, cotton and soybean, while Monsanto's Xtend trait confers tolerance to dicamba in cotton and soybean. While these new tools may help with the management of herbicide-resistant weed species, they require proper stewardship. There are numerous ornamental, vegetable and crop species that are especially sensitive to even low doses of 2,4-D and dicamba; therefore, applicators must be vigilant when spraying these herbicides to prevent off-target movement.
