XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology, a restricted use pesticide, is the lowest volatility dicamba technology available for the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop system. Using XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology will bring another level of weed control to your acres, helping to combat hundreds of weed species.
Decades of research has proved dicamba’s superior weed control, but the concern for its volatility persisted. Volatility, the movement of an herbicide as a vapor after spraying, is caused by molecules from the chemical vaporizing. VaporGrip Technology helps prevent the formation of the dicamba acid responsible for this off-target movement. This breakthrough significantly minimizes dicamba’s volatility potential after spraying. In fact, XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology has proven to reduce volatility by 90 percent compared to older dicamba formulations.
With this significant reduction in volatility, growers can use XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology to confidently control weeds and protect their yields. With more and more weeds developing glyphosate resistance, growers need a herbicide they can turn to, and XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology fits the bill. The detailed label lists out the impressive number of weeds this herbicide can combat— over 270 of them. Many of these weeds have become pain points for farmers over the past years, and growers have voiced their struggle to control them.

“We have pigweeds that we're fighting, we've been fighting for the last couple years and with the adoption of the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System, it's gonna be another tool to help fight the pigweed situation in our area.” Taylor Henderson, District Sales Manager, Monsanto
Pigweed is just one of these hard-to-control weeds that XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology can combat. Lambsquarters, velvetleaf and dozens of other broadleaf weeds can be tackled with this herbicide.
In addition to fighting these hard-to-control weeds, XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology provides another crucial piece of the puzzle— an additional mode of action. Growers who have struggled to control glyphosate-resistant broadleaf weeds such as Palmer amaranth, waterhemp and marestail, can count on XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology to keep their fields clean.
“My guys are very satisfied with Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System. Weed control's been a top priority for them, and the first response they give back to us is, ‘This is the cleanest my fields have been in probably four, five years when we started to get more Palmer pigweed.’ That's the best part to hear from customers is, ‘I've got clean fields.’” -Jesse Little, Chemistry Account Manager, Monsanto.
This weed fighting capability is enhanced by the application flexibility afforded with this herbicide. XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology provides growers up to 14 days of soil activity on small-seeded broadleaf weeds* and gives growers extended application flexibility before, at and after planting.
When used as a full-systems approach, XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology is an ideal dicamba option to help control glyphosate-resistant and tough-to-control weeds and to maximize yield potential.

Always use dicamba with traditional residual herbicides in pre-emergence and postemergence applications that have different, effective sites of action, along with other diversified weed management practices.
