BISMARCK, N.D – Dicamba training sessions have been scheduled by BASF, Monsanto and DuPont in various locations around North Dakota.

In October, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released their new label language classifying the new formulations as restricted-use products, meaning that they may only be applied by a certified pesticide applicator or under the direct supervision of a certified applicator.

“Both applicators and those working under their supervision will be required to complete a Dicamba-specific training course before being allowed to apply the product,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. “The training will benefit applicators by teaching them the techniques to use the technology properly so that these products will be available for future use.”

The training sessions will meet the requirements of the state and attendees will be issued a certificate of completion. Applicators only need to attend one registrant training to be able to apply any of the three products. The products are XtendiMax by Monsanto; Engenia by BASF; and FeXapan by DuPont. FeXapan by DuPont is still in the registration process but DuPont is working on setting up training sessions to start as soon as approval is granted.

The training sessions scheduled so far are as follows:
