New molecule mitigates potential for volatility by up to 90%


What do heavier molecular weight and stronger chemical bonds get you in an herbicide?

When the solution is Engenia herbicide, the answer is simple: You get a powerful new weed control solution that’s worth its salt. BAPMA salt, to be specific.

BASF has built an entirely new dicamba molecule, one with unique properties among dicamba formulations. The most flexible and advanced dicamba for dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybeans, this BAPMA formulation is unique relative to DGA and DMA dicambas with its heavier molecular weight and stronger bond. The result: greatly reduced volatility — up to 90% reduction.


Another benefit is use rate: At 12.8 oz/A, Engenia herbicide has the lowest use rate of any dicamba product on the market, making it well suited for direct injection and saving applicators additional time and money.

Engenia herbicide also has been formulated to allow flexibility in future tank-mixing options, which include glyphosate, upon EPA approval. Visit for a list of EPA approved tank-mix products.
