Folks with Cotton and Soybean Interest:
Recent EPA label changes have identified newly registered dicamba (Engenia, FeXapan, or XtendiMax) and 2,4-D (Enlist Duo or Enlist One) products labeled for use in Xtend or Enlist cotton or soybeans as Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP). Individuals planning to apply these products (all applicators including the sprayer operator) must attend a mandatory training entitled Auxin Herbicides – Best Management Practices even if training was completed in 2017. Individuals will receive a card upon completion of the training which will be required by your dealer for purchase. I have attached a list of 30 Auxin Herbicides- Best Management Training dates and locations. You are encouraged to find a regional meeting date and location that works best for your schedule.
If you plan to attend the regional meeting in Lumberton, please notify the Robeson County Center at 910-671-3276.
