On October 31, 2018, US EPA issued a decision to allow the continued use of dicamba on soybean for the years 2019 and 2020. Dicamba Specialized Training is AGAIN REQUIRED for anyone applying dicamba in 2020.

Only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top (those working under the supervision of a certified applicator may no longer make applications). This means, if a farmer (private applicator) has a relative, business partner or farm employee apply dicamba on their farm, they must have a current private applicator license issued by the State of Illinois.

The registration for all dicamba products will automatically expire on December 20, 2020, unless EPA further extends it.  Learn more: https://www.epa.gov/ingredients-used-pesticide-products/registration-dicamba-use-genetically-engineered-crops
