Tavium Plus VaporGrip Technology Application & Stewardship
Tavium Plus VaporGrip Technology Application and Stewardship
Tavium® Plus VaporGrip® Technology herbicide provides contact and residual control of key broadleaf and grass weeds in dicamba-tolerant soybeans and cotton. Tavium is a crucial component of a full-season weed management program for hard-to-control resistant weeds.
This page provides an overview of the application information you need before using Tavium. Dicamba- or auxin-specific training is required before applying Tavium; please check with your state about training and application requirements before use.
View the information on application requirements.
Application Rate & Timing
Apply Tavium at 3.53 pt/A with each application. For best performance, treat weeds early when they are less than 4" tall.
Know weather conditions such as wind speed, potential for temperature inversion, impending rainfall, etc. Tavium may only be applied when winds are between 3 – 10 mph and when rainfall that could exceed soil field capacity and result in soil runoff is NOT expected in the next 24 hours.
Avoid Temperature Inversions
Do not apply until at least one hour after sunrise and no later than two hours before sunset.
Buffer Zone Requirement
Ensure there is a 110' downwind in-field buffer. In counties where endangered species exist, the downwind buffer will remain at 110' and additional 57' buffers are required around the other sides of the field.
Apply only when the potential for drift to adjacent sensitive areas (e.g., residential areas, bodies of water, known habitat for threatened or endangered species, nontarget crops) is minimal (i.e., when wind is blowing away from the sensitive areas).
Sprayer System Cleanout
Follow label-prescribed sprayer cleanout procedures to prevent contamination in sprayer loads following Tavium application.
Tavium must be applied with approved nozzles that produce extremely-coarse to ultra-coarse droplet size.
Spray Boom Height
Do not exceed a boom height of 24" above target pest or crop canopy.
Sprayer speed must not exceed 15 mph.

Tavium herbicide provides two effective sites of action (SOAs) to manage key ALS-, PPO- and glyphosate-resistant weeds. A convenient premix, it provides residual and contact weed control, and built-in resistance management. Tavium fits easily in various tillage systems and geographies, and has application flexibility from preplant through early post-emergence.
Only use nozzles designed to produce extremely-coarse to ultra-coarse droplets. Avoid using screens and strainers finer than 50-mesh.Approved Nozzles
