2021 Auxin Best Management Practices Training, Virtual and In-Person Options

— Written By and last updated by

Labels for Engenia, FeXapan, Tavium, and XtendiMax are now classified as Federal Restricted Use Pesticides. They can be sold by Licensed Pesticide Dealers and purchased only by licensed/certified (commercial and private) applicators. Only Licensed Pesticide Applicators who have taken the 2021 Auxin Herbicide Best Management Practices training will be allowed to apply these dicamba products. The 2, 4-D products (Enlist One and Enlist Duo) will only require the training in 2021 before making any application.

New labeling of these products requires that any person who intends to use dicamba must be a certified private applicator or licensed in an appropriate category and is required to successfully complete the Auxin BMP Training. **Noncertified persons working under the supervision of a certified applicator are prohibited from using or applying dicamba products. All applying these products must be licensed pesticide applicators.**

There are 12 virtual training dates available this year. Please note, you MUST register before the scheduled meeting time. Once registered, you will receive an email link to join the Zoom meeting you have registered for. Pesticide credits will also be provided.

Please call the office at 910-671-3276 for information on how to register for these trainings.
