Explanation of Changes to Dicamba Certification

  • To apply Dicamba to cotton in 2019 the applicator must have a Private or Commercial Pesticide license and attend a Using Pesticide Wisely trainging in 2019. All UPW training prior to 2019 will no longer count.

 

  • If an applicator does not have a pesticide license and does not wish to obtain a private applicators license in 2019 they must attend the dicamba certification that will be help after the UPW training is complete. This dicamba certification will be conducted during the last 45 minutes of a Using Pesticides Wisely (UPW) training. This will give the applicator a one year dicamba certication to apply dicamba to cotton for the 2019 season. This certification is valid for XtendiMax, Engenia, and Fexapan.
