STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Two highly anticipated online training modules are now available for those who plan to purchase or apply dicamba and similar herbicides.
The Mississippi State University Extension Service, in cooperation with the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce Bureau of Plant Industry, developed these new online training courses related to herbicides labeled for use with dicamba-tolerant cotton and soybeans in response to label changes from the Environmental Protection Agency.
One course will be similar to a module offered last year for individuals purchasing restricted-use pesticides. The second course covers the label requirements for applicator training. The online modules are available at http://auxintraining.com. For those without computer or Internet access, please contact your local Extension office.
