Alabama Pesticide Education Information

Auxin Herbicide Best Management Practices Training Course

In January ADAI submitted 24(c) labeling for all products containing 2,4-D or dicamba intended to be used in conjunction with 2,4-D or dicamba tolerant crops. The 24(c) label will require specific mandatory training and wind speed restrictions not to exceed 10 mph.

This mandatory training titled Auxin Herbicides – Best Management Practices is intended to assist applicators in reducing incidents of herbicide drift to susceptible crops, technical application methods, tank clean-out, and information about the new chemistries. The producer, certified applicator, or person responsible for the application of these products on cotton and soybeans, in-crop must receive this training.

Commercial applicators will receive pesticide recertification credit upon completion. Certified Crop Advisors will also receive points. 10 points per training. Lunch or Dinner will be provided at each location.

Registration is required in advance via credit card or your $10.00 Check or Money Order may be turned in at the event.
