Using Pesticides Wisely (UPW) Meetings Scheduled

Pesticide applicators who plan to use auxin herbicides in 2021 will need to attend a virtual UPW Training. Here are the details:

Engenia, FeXapan, Tavium, XtendiMax
1. All applicators driving the tractor/sprayer applying these herbicides must attend Using Pesticides Wisely during 2021 prior to using these products!    2. As mandated by federal law, applicators must have a private or commercial pesticide applicator license to apply these products. Labels specifically state “To be used by certified applicators only; NOT to be used by uncertified persons working under the supervision of a certified applicator, except that uncertified person may transport containers.”  
Enlist Duo or Enlist One
1. All persons in charge of in-season applications of Enlist Duo or Enlist One in Enlist cotton or soybean must attend Using Pesticides Wisely training prior to using these products in 2021!    
Attending Georgia’s Using Pesticide Wisely Training
Virtual Trainings: Applicators are asked to please select one of the dates provided below to attend a virtual training. Although far from an ideal training approach, it is the most efficient and safe method to communicate critical information that applicators must understand for the 2021 growing season. The training will last no more than 1.5 hr.   If computer or internet access restricts participation, contact your local county Extension office.   NO TRAININGS will be offered after April 15 for the 2021 season.
