On June 3, 2020, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the registrations of XtendiMax®, FeXapan™, and Engenia®. The Court did not vacate the registration of Tavium®, an RUP dicamba/S-metolachlor premix.
On June 8, 2020, the EPA issued a cancellation order that
outlines limited and specific circumstances under which existing stocks of the three affected dicamba products can be used for a limited period of time. Key details of this order are:
Distribution or sale [of the three products] by any person is generally prohibited except for ensuring proper disposal or return to the registrant[s].
Growers and commercial applicators may use existing stocks [of the three products] that were in their possession on June 3, 2020, the effective date of the Court decision. Such use must be consistent with the product's previously-approved label, and may not continue after July 31, 2020.
