In October 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency required that soybean and cotton Dicamba products (currently XtendiMaxTM, FeXapanTM, and EngeniaTM) be classified as Restricted Use Pesticides (RUPs). This change requires anyone applying these products to be a licensed certified applicator whether for private, commercial, or non‐commercial application. There was also a requirement by EPA for additional training on Dicamba use for these three products. This is a special training which is different from the normal local, agronomy and restricted use pesticide certification meetings.

As parents, we have all heard or even said the famous saying, “Do as I say, not as I do.” In reality, we know that modeling the behaviors we want is the key to getting those behaviors to show up in our kids. Turns out, words are important, too.
Fungus can be both a good and a bad thing. Mushrooms on pizza are an example of good fungus. Fungus in lawns, on the other hand, are nearer the other end of the spectrum. If your turf is looking a little thin and brown in spots; you are not alone. Fungus and hot temperatures have wreaked havoc on lawns this year, but there is still time to make your lawn look full and lush for this fall.
