Engenia Herbicide. Pure Genius.

Engenia herbicide from BASF is a new solution for dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton. It's the most flexible and advanced dicamba for dicamba-tolerant crops, designed to deliver performance you can count on for clean fields and maximum yield potential.

Engenia herbicide provides an additional, effective site of action for more than 200 broadleaf weeds, including glyphosate-resistant species, giving growers peace of mind.

This broad-spectrum solution controls the toughest broadleaf weeds like Palmer amaranth, waterhemp, marestail, velvetleaf, morningglory and giant ragweed.

There are currently 16 species of glyphosate-resistant weeds in the U.S., with 38 states affected by at least one species.

The number of herbicide-resistant weeds in each state is growing.* If not controlled, weed pressure can result in total crop loss in severe cases.1


As the inventors of dicamba, BASF has more than 50 years of experience in developing and improving dicamba for effective applications to meet evolving grower needs.

1 International Survey of Herbicide Resistant Weeds

Engenia herbicide is the most flexible and advanced dicamba for dicamba-tolerant crops.


Engenia herbicide is formulated to provide maximum flexibility with the lowest use rate of all dicamba products on the market, reducing the number of trips into the fields and sprayer loading time.

With a lower use rate, growers can stock less product and save more space.

When you use Engenia herbicide, you’ll apply at a rate of 12.8 ounces per acre, the lowest use rate when compared to any competitive product.

"The flexibility to use dicamba close to both planting and early post will greatly help control glyphosate and PPO-resistant palmer amaranth."

Direct Injection

With an option for direct injection, farmers can cover more acres with the same input volume. And more coverage with one tank fill means fewer trips back to refill, which can save significant time and money.

Benefits of direct injection include:

  • Allowing growers to clean out a sprayer in one-third the time of a conventional unit.
  • That hour saved lets growers cover another 200+ acres before cleaning, giving growers a more efficient application window in the spring.
  • Minimizing cleaning time by involving only a few hoses and not an entire system.
  • Allowing for turning off the Engenia herbicide flow in buffer areas without having to stop and clean.

Weed Control System

Engenia herbicide is part of a complete weed control system, providing a crop-safe, simple and reliable herbicide option following a residual herbicide to control even the toughest weeds.

Our industry-leading weed control portfolio is just one part of a complete acre approach.

A system approach delivers proven efficacy.

BASF studies show that a combination of Engenia herbicide and BASF residual herbicides control more than 95 percent of both grasses and problematic broadleaf weeds.

A responsibility for stewardship.

Every aspect of farming takes commitment, and teaching correct, effective herbicide application is our commitment to you.

In modern agriculture, the advent of new and advanced herbicide technologies must accompany an equal dedication to stewardship. With the push toward leading technologies, like Engenia herbicide, BASF developed the On Target Application Academy (OTAA) to provide best-practice training that promotes correct and effective herbicide application.

OTAA guides BASF’s long-standing stewardship responsibility to growers through a one-of-a-kind educational program. Featuring some of the top minds in herbicide application technology in the country, OTAA sessions teach growers how to minimize drift and make applications of low-volatility Engenia herbicide safe, accurate and effective. Since its inception in 2012, OTAA has reached thousands of growers in highest crop producing regions in the country.

Increasing our reach.

To augment the reach of the program’s accessibility to applicators, BASF is bringing the OTAA educational experience online. In the form of a digital training module, this online OTAA will include a series of educational videos that will teach growers best practices for herbicide applications.

Growers and applicators can take the OTAA training module by visiting Grow Smart University, clicking on the "Herbicides" tab and selecting the module titled "Making an On Target Engenia Herbicide Application."

OTAA by the numbers.
