Weekly County Update 5/7/21

Dicamba update: Commissioner Gary Black and Dr. Stanley Culpepper went to the EPA in a hard-fought battle to obtain a Georgia state label for Dicamba however they were unsuccessful this year. They are very optimistic about receiving a state label next year, but we must follow the federal dicamba label for this year. On a positive note, the EPA was very impressed with how our UPW training correlates to limited/if any off-target herbicide cases. Bottom line is that you must follow the federal label and as of right now UPW trainings are still every year. We will be submitting a 24C label later this year to try and get it changed to every other year. Cotton cut off day is July 30 and 240ft buffer remains.
