Dicamba training dates announced
November 29, 2017

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has issued a revised label for the three dicamba products that are labeled for post emergence use, including Engenia (BASF), XtendiMax (Monsanto) and FeXapan (DuPont). The USEPA has made these three products a restricted use pesticide, which means that only certified applicators can purchase or apply these products. The new label applies to both commercial applicators and to farmers.
    All applicators of these products must be trained in the proper use of the products, and keep a record of each application. Proof of training must accompany the record of application. There are significant changes in the product labels that must be followed, and the training will provide detailed explanations and examples of proper dicamba use. 
The closest training location for our area is scheduled for Tuesday, February 20 at 6:00 p.m. at the First Christian Church in Fairfield. A pre-training dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. 
    Additional training dates will likely be added soon. Information and registration links for Illinois’ Dicamba Training can be found at www.ifca.com/IllinoisDicambaTraning. To ensure adequate seating, you are encouraged to pre-register for the training on the IFCA website.
