Mandatory Dicamba Training March 16th
Florida Mandatory Dicamba Resistant Crop Training Video – Lafayette County Extension Office Friday, March 16th from 10:00 am – Noon
In a recent ruling from EPA, “Auxin Specific Training” is now required before anyone uses a dicamba herbicide on dicamba-tolerant crops. Any farmer that grows cotton or soybeans could plant varieties with dicamba resistance. They do not need training to plant the seed, but they MUST have training to purchase and apply the dicamba materials. This is the only situation where dicamba training is mandatory. Turf, forage, corn, sorghum and small grain producers can still apply dicamba products without participating in this training.
UF extension offices across North Florida will be hosting training via interactive video. The extension office in Mayo is a host site Friday, March 16th from 10:00 am – Noon. Contact your local extension office for other training sites. The training will be recorded so that the producers can view at a later date and still receive credit.
Since this training is mandatory, proof of attendance is required. The FDAC’s CEU Form that is received after completing the training will serve as the official documentation of attendance.
