ROUNDUP XTEND™ Herbicide WITH VAPORGRIP® TECHNOLOGY
The next step in weed control for your Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® soybeans.
Monsanto developed this low-volatility liquid glyphosate and dicamba pre-mix formulation that’s easy to use when fighting resistant and tough-to-control weeds in the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System. Here are a few benefits of Roundup Xtend™ herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology:
- New tool to control glyphosate-resistant and hard-to-kill broadleaf weeds
- Convenient pre-mix formulation makes it easy to include dual modes of action in the tank
- Through our exclusive VaporGrip® Technology, there is a 90% reduction in volatility potential compared to Clarity® herbicide (registered in Canada as Banvel® II)
VaporGrip® Technology provides confidence in on-target application. This exclusive technology developed by Monsanto prevents the formation of dicamba acid, providing a significant reduction in volatility potential compared to commercially available dicamba formulations.
In older dicamba formulations, the dicamba ions (Dc-) present in solution combine with free hydrogen ions (H+) to form volatile dicamba acid (DCH). VaporGrip® Technology prevents dicamba ions (Dc-) from combining with hydrogen ions (H+), significantly reducing volatility.
Broad spectrum weed control
Roundup Xtend™ herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology controls tough annual broadleaf weeds like biennial wormwood, wild buckwheat, Canada fleabane, kochia and narrow-leaved hawk’s beard. It also controls most annual grass weeds like green and yellow foxtail and wild oats, along with perennial weeds like Canada thistle and dandelion.

Excellent tank mix compatibility for even greater weed control
Roundup Xtend™ may be tank mixed with other herbicides to provide full season residual weed control, a broader spectrum of weed control, an alternate mode of action or to increase the application rate of glyphosate.
