Do you plan to use dicamba products in 2019? These new auxin herbicides, used to kill glyphosate resistant pigweeds, require that you complete mandatory training before you may legally use these products. Even if you attended a training in 2018, you must attend again in 2019.
This mandatory training, titled Auxin Herbicides - Best Management Practices, presented by Cooperative Extension Specialists, is intended to assist applicators in reducing incidents of herbicide drift to susceptible crops. Each applicator will need to complete the training prior to use of these products. If you are unable to attend this meeting there are a number of others scheduled in surrounding counties. Call the Extension office to get a list of dates and locations. 1 hour of NODX will be provided with this training.
