Alabama: New Dicamba Rules for 2019

Engenia (BASF), Xtendimax (Bayer), FeXapan (Corteva) are all restricted use pesticide. So, a valid RUP is required for purchased. Also, these herbicides are “For retail sale to and use only by Certified Applicators”, which means whoever buys those need to have a private applicator license too.

Whoever sprays any of these new dicamba herbicides need to be certified as well, which means they need to have their own private applicator licenses and can no longer spray under employer’s supervision (this could be a pain in the neck for some farmers).

After they spray each field, they need to generate record within 72 hours. In this record, the certification number of the certified applicator is required, whether he is farm owner or farm hand.

Anyone spraying dicamba will have to have BOTH private pesticide training and auxin herbicide training. This is required by EPA and the Alabama Department of Agriculture.
