Dicamba Misuse Update

IFCA continues to stay in touch with the Illinois Dept of Ag regarding complaints reported on alleged pesticide misuse.  As of Wednesday this week, IDA has received only two formal complaints regarding dicamba.  The number of complaints continues to grow in states to the south (Arkansas has 437 complaints; click here to see a map illustrating the counties in Arkansas where complaints have been registered).  
Please remain vigilant on the dicamba label requirements; BASF just released a technical bulletin with guidance on how to recognize and avoid temperature inversions.  Click here for the guidance document.  Keep up the good work everyone and thanks to all our members who are working with your customers to manage the first year's use of this new technology.
