Alabama Cooperative Extension will offer training for anyone who will be applying auxin herbicides to dicamba or 2,4-D tolerant crops. While mandatory for Alabama farmers, Florida farmers can also attend these educational classes. See the table below for the date, time, and location closest to you. All Alabama producers that are planning on using this technology must attend.
Last week in Panhandle Ag, two articles were posted about using this technology and managing drift hazards. (New Herbicide Resistant Crop Varieties Offer New Tools for Weed Management in 2017 & Managing Dicamba Drift when using New Dicamba Resistant Cotton Varieties) Though Florida farmers are still awaiting approval for use of this technology, this is a great opportunity to get trained now, to be prepared for their use.
