All Oklahoma producers and applicators who plan to apply XtendiMax, FeXapan, Engenia to dicamba-tolerant cotton or soybeans in 2020 will need training.

There is a federally mandated training for Oklahoma applicators who plan to apply approved dicamba products to dicamba-tolerant cotton or soybeans in 2020. This annual training will cover application requirements, specific record keeping, and other label clarifications unique to these products. Producers and/or applicators have to be certified applicators (private or commercial) and attend an annual dicamba training. Even if you attended a dicamba training last year, you will have to attend the new training this year.

Contact your local Oklahoma Cooperative Extension office, to find out when a local training will be held near you.

This year, certified applicators will not receive a new card in the mail indicating they have completed the training, (D designation on card). ODAFF will house a master list of applicators who have attended a training.

Only certified applicators may purchase and apply these products. Applicators operating under the supervision of a certified applicator may not purchase or apply these products.

Texas producers

If you plan to apply Engenia, Xtendimax, FeXapan, Tavium, and/or Enlistone/EnlistDuo in 2020, you must attend an auxin training.

Oklahoma does not require training for Enlist.
