Description:
Labels for Engenia, FeXapan, and XtendiMax were revised again. Those products are now classified as Federal Restricted Use Pesticides. They can only be sold by licensed pesticide dealers and purchased only by licensed/certified (commercial and private) applicators. Only licensed pesticide applicators who have taken the 2019 auxin training will be allowed to apply these dicamba products. This means that someone working under you without a license is not allowed to apply the restricted use dicamba products. The 2,4-D products, Enlist and Enlist Duo, will only require the training in 2019 before making any applications. Dr. Wesley Everman, NCSU Extension Weed Specialist, will provide recommendations on the proper use and application of these auxin family herbicides.
