Dicamba Bulletin and Endangered Species Counties Map

Following the new five-year registrations for dicamba-containing products for soybean is the need for applicators to clearly understand the requirements when using these products.  One of the main hurdles needing clarification deals with the endangered species counties that require additional 57 ft omnidirectional buffers and a 310 ft downwind buffer.  Dr. Hager of the Department of Crop Sciences at the University of Illinois issued a Bulletin this week explaining the ESA changes and other important requirements of the new labels.  To read Dr. Hager’s helpful Bulletin, click HERE.  Also, feel free to visit our dicamba website for up-to-date information on dicamba.  You can also either view, or download and print a detailed map and list of ESA counties by clicking HERE.
