Training: Auxin Herbicides – Best Management Practices

Attention Herbicide Applicators: For New Formulations of 2,4-D and Dicamba

NCDA&CS will submit 24(c) labeling for all products containing 2,4-D or dicamba intended to be used in conjunction with 2,4-D or dicamba tolerant crops (cotton & soybeans). The 24(c) label will require specific mandatory training and wind speed restrictions not to exceed 10 mph.

This mandatory training titled Auxin Herbicides – Best Management Practices presented by Dr. Alan York, Dr. David Jordan, or Dr. Wes Everman is intended to assist applicators in reducing incidents of herbicide drift to susceptible crops. At least one applicator on each farm will need to complete the training prior to use of these new products.

Applicators and dealers will receive 2 hours of pesticide recertification credit in categories N, O, D, and X upon completion.
Contact your local Extension Office or NCDA&CS, Pesticides Section (919)733-3556 or www.ncagr.gov/SPCAP/pesticides for proposed meeting dates & locations of the training in your area.
