The Equity Offers Dicamba Specialized Training for Licensed Applicators

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

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 the EPA further extends it. Learn more at: https://www.epa.gove/ingredients-used-pesticide-products/registration-dicamba-use-genetically-engineered-crops

To meet the requirements for Dicamba Training The Equity, along with Bayer Crop Science, is sponsoring three Dicamba Specialized Training sessions open to All Licensed Applicators at the times and locations below.

Registration is required to attend.
