Soy Growers Planning to Apply Dicamba Must Go Through Training

Apr 10, 2020

A mandatory training is required for growers using dicamba or auxin-type products in their fields. Growers must participate in training before applying the following products in 2020.  As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and in response to the CDC guidelines of limiting face-to-face contact, trainings for this year have moved online. Most, but not all, states accept the online training, so growers are encouraged to research their state requirements.

In states where online training is accepted, BASF encourages applicators to take advantage of the online training module available on the Engenia Stewardship website.

For 2020, all dicamba training for Syngenta’s Tavium will be completed online. Earlier in the year, Syngenta made edits to the training modules and worked with states to update the training deck to align with their specific requirements. The training can be found here.

Bayer is offering live webinars and online RoundUp Ready Xtend training in states that do not require training to be provided by the state. Check if your state accepts online training and find the modules here. Bayer in now offering one more additional webinar on Tuesday, April 21, at 9:00 a.m. Central Time.

Growers and applicators who will be planting and/or spraying Enlist E3 soybeans in 2020 can join Corteva’s training webinar to learn more about using the Enlist weed control system.

This one-hour session covers how to achieve effective weed control on Enlist acres, tank-mixing with Enlist herbicides, field scenarios and spray requirements. Whether you’re new to the system or would like a refresher on how to maximize the technology, you’re sure to pick up helpful information for weed management and effective sprays.

These webinars are led by Enlist field specialist staff on Friday, April 17 from 8-9 a.m. CDT and Monday, May 4 from 8-9 a.m. CDT.
