GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida is once again required to host a statewide Dicamba Stewardship Training. This training is required for ALL applicators who plan to apply dicamba (or want the option later) over-the-top of cotton or soybean. All applicators are also required to have their OWN restricted use pesticide license, these product labels (XtendiMax, Engenia, FeXapan, and Tavium) do not allow for the supervision of unlicensed applicators.
As in previous years, this training will be live streamed to participating extension offices around the state. It is scheduled for Feb. 18 from 9-11 CST (10-12 EST).
Here is a list of participating locations:
Escambia County (to be hosted off site, call their office for information)
Gadsden County (to be hosted at NFREC Quincy NOT the extension office)
Holmes County (to be hosted off site, call their office for information)
Santa Rosa County (Jay office location)
For more information regarding this training, contact your closest participating location or Ethan Carter, the Regional Crop IPM Agent based in Jackson County (850-482-9620).
